Project ID in velocity template - how to?

Hi All,

we'd change the email templates: according to the project key, the users would get different links in the email notification hence we have 2 URLs accessing to JIRA.

The code snippet is the following:

#if( PROJECTKEY == "XY")
[ ${baseurl}/browse/${issue.getKey()}?page=${tabpanel-all} ]

Our problem is that we do not find the correct reference for the PROJECTKEY. We tried with this:

$project.Key() but it did not work.

Could you please help?

Thanks in advance,

Try $issue.projectObject.key or $issue.getProjectObject().getKey()

You may refer to this page for details

Yep, as Boris says looks like you can use $issue.getProjectObject().getKey().

However we use $issue.getProject().name for something similar that we do... but looking at the docs, our way might be deprecated and in need of an upgrade but it works for now.
