I want to assign the name of the work item's creator to a custom field.  I can figure out how to extract the UUID for the Creator field, but don't know how to fetch the name in the form of a string for my calculated value script from the UUID.

currently there is no mechanism to get from UUID to contributor name in Javascript

see https://jazz.net/forum/questions/80964/how-to-get-contributor-name-by-javascript
you would have to write a java participant server plugin

 Try workItem.getLabel().

getlabel() on what? the UUID or the contributor entry?

instead of

var uuid= workItem.getValue( WorkItemAttributes.OWNER );

try using

var name_or_id = workItem.getLabel( WorkItemAttributes.OWNER );

I am not sure if it returns the readable user ID or the user name though.

Cannot find function getLabel in object [object com.ibm.team.workitem.shared.common.internal.scripting.facades.WorkItemAPIType].

my js statement:  workItem.getLabel(WorkItemAttributes.CREATOR)

I used it in https://jazz.net/library/article/1093 Lab 5 and it works for me. It might have been introduced in 4.0.

I am using your js and I am erroring out on this statement,

                out+="Creator Name: " + workItem.getLabel(WorkItemAttributes.CREATOR)+"\n";

Tried this with RTC 4.0.1

I am using my lab 5 solution files from https://jazz.net/library/article/1093 (calculated against the description) and it works for me in 4.0.1. It actually provides the name and not the ID.
