Quick Way to Add an Issue to a Sprint

When issues are added, is there a quick way to add the issue to a sprint from the issue navigator?

Currently we do the following to add the issue to the sprint:

1. Browse to issue in issue navigator

2. Click "View of Board" link under Agile section

3. Select Board from pop-up

4. Right-click issue and send to the desired sprint

Fewer steps would be desirable.

Well, you could always insert the ID of the Sprint to the issue if you know what the ID is. Or you could create the issue in the board itself and then drag it to the Sprint.

Timothy's recommendation worked like a charm. Nice one. 

Is there a way I can assign the task to a Sprint from CLI. I tried below command and output showing it is created but actually the field or value is not been updated.

jira.sh --action createIssue --summary "For Sprint 14" --user XXXX --password XXXXX --server "https://XXXXXX.net" --project 'XXXXX' --type "task" --assignee XXXX --description "XXXXXX" --field 'Sprint' --value "Sprint 14"
Issue DEVOPS-753 created with id 48521.
