Set active sprint to issue using groovy


I would like to set active sprint to an issue if the priority is changed to 'High'.

How can I do it?

Hi @Dan27 ,

You can run the following script on the Issue Updated event via Custom Listener to capture the issue priority value changes.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def change = event?.getChangeLog()?.getRelated("ChildChangeItem")?.find {it.field == "priority"}

if (change) {

log.warn "old value: ${change}"
log.warn "new value: ${change.newstring}"

//check the condition
if(change.newstring == "High")

In the dosomething content, you can merge the script from the example here to add the issue to the current/active sprint. You may require to do a few testing to ensure everything is working for you. I hope this helps.
