This function is used in Python Scripting.


Returns the name of the project where the function was called from. When called from the Gateway scope from a resource that originates from a singular project (reports, SFCs, etc.), will return that resources project. Resources that run in the Gateway scope, but are configured in a singular project (such as a report), will use that project's name. 

When called from a scope that does not have an associated project (a Tag Event Script), the function will return the name of the Gateway scripting project. If a Gateway scripting project has not been configured, then returns an empty string.
