Based on JM-48 got working mehod:

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import com.atlassian.jira.project.Project
import com.atlassian.jira.project.ProjectManager

import org.apache.log4j.Category
def Category log = Category.getInstance("get.metadata.values.from.project")

//processing projectpicker
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def cfClient = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_12700")
def cfClientValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cfClient)

def projectManager = ComponentAccessor.getProjectManager()
def projectObject = projectManager.getProjectObjByName(
Issue myIssue = issue
log.debug("HHH Metadata Value: " + ComponentAccessor.getComponentOfType(myIssue.getClass().getClassLoader().findLoadedClass("com.atlassian.jira.plugin.JiraOsgiContainerManager")).getServiceTracker("com.osoboo.jira.metadata.MetadataService").getService().getMetadataValue(projectObject, "Key"))


if you want the ID you can use the following

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue;
import com.atlassian.jira.project.Project;

//Create the project object
Project project = issue.getProjectObject();
//Create project id
Long pr_id = project.getId();

Hi, Kostas,

thank you for answer. No problems with project ID.

But need to get project's metadata values.

There is add-on "Metadata for JIRA", created by @Andreas Spall. This add-on adds some fields to project.

hmm, i see. No idea about about how you could do that.

You would have to see how that plugin stores additional data. Most likely OSProperty, in which case:

import com.atlassian.core.ofbiz.util.OFBizPropertyUtils
