Unable to get project name of a project picker customfield

Hi guys, I'm using the behaviours plugin and I would like to extract the name of a project selected in a project picker. I tried the following: FormField projectPicker = getFieldById(fieldChanged) projectPicker.getFormValue(); but this returns only the id. Is there a possibility to extract the name? Kind regards

Actually sorry, try getValue() instead of getFormValue(). That does some conversions and may well give you a Project object. In which case you can just look at the .name property.

You will need to use com.atlassian.jira.project.ProjectManager#getProjectObj to look up the project object by ID.

Hi Jamie,

Thanks for your Answer!
