Sprint linked to issue only after sprint starts

Using GreenHopper Scrum, I have dragged several issues to Sprint 1

I'd expect 2 things to happen :

a) using JQL to be able to search for issues with = ' Sprint 1'

b) on the issue view/edit screen, provided that the field is enabled for it to show the sprint name.

No such luck. for both a) and b) this field gets populated only when we start the sprint.

Is that by design ? Where's it actually storing the sprint mapping before I start the sprint ?

IF it's by design, this is really cumbersome and makes Sprint Planning much less valuable and integrated with JIRA; I actually want to produce reports with the field even for sprints which are planned and not due to start for months to be able to tell people when itereations are planned and who is doing what months from now.

2) Even if I do start the sprint, the is populated with a internal numeric id on the edit screen. (on the view screen I'm getting the correct Sprint Name)

Sometimes if I am editing an issue, assigning it and transitioning it through the workflow, it would be great to be able to also see the Sprint Name and chose another sprint if needed, (i can do this now, but I need to remember the numeric id of each sprint. )

Your help is much appreciated. I'm getting the feeling that issue a is by design... can anyone confirm this?

Hi Gregory,

In regards to searching for upcoming/planned Sprints, this is coming out in a soon to be released version of Greenhopper:

Currently, the workaround is to go through the database:

As for being able to key in sprint name, instead of the ID, in the Sprint field during issue editing, there is a open Story for that here that you can keep an eye out for:

Thanks for the info:

Looking forward to the next version.

Any idea when 6.3 is coming out ?

No official date yet, but it shouldn't be too far away :)
