Check project category in validator - groovy script


I need to check issue's project category in workflow validator

I think that the best way is check it using groovy script.

Trying to execute

issue.projectObject.category == 'CategoryName'

it returns error: javax.script.ScriptException: groovy.lang.MissingPropertyException: No such property: category for class: com.atlassian.jira.project.ProjectImpl


Is there any command to get and check project category in validator?

See javadoc and use == 'CategoryName' instead.

Probably want to be null-safe there... not all projects have a category: issue.projectObject.projectCategoryObject?.name == '...'

I am needing to do this same validation in Jira Cloud JMWE.  Unfortunately, the syntax of the command is not the same and I can't find any documentation other than this thread that could help steer me in the right direction.  The closest I've gotten is: == "..." which returns:

Evaluation failed: "" - Unrecognized property of ``: "name" ('name'). Type null does not have any properties

And, without the ".name" node, it simply returns a "null" value.  I've also tried .categoryName and .id (testing for the category value) which return a similar error as above.

Does anyone happen to know the syntax for Jira Cloud JMWE?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Unfortunately, Jira expressions don't provide access to project category information:

This is a limitation of Jira Cloud, not JMWE. The limitation will be the same for all apps.
