Can any kind of automation be used to implement an enterprise PI/sprint calendar in Jira Align?

Apryl Harris July 26, 2023

Our organization is considering establishing an enterprise PI/Sprint calendar in Jira Cloud which might be implemented via global automation.

Anyone know if there any way we can automate Jira Align to create the corresponding PIs and anchor sprints using native tooling (just Jira Align; or via Jira Align API and a bit of code)?

if not with native tooling, anyone do this using other tools?

Thank you.

Jira Align API 2 allows for the creation of Program Increments and Anchor Sprints using something like the example HTTP POST Request below.  The term Release is used for Program Increment in Jira Align API calls.

POST https://[...]/align/api/2/Releases

For info:

Jira Align Tech Support has now had confirmation that our REST API does not currently support creating Anchor sprints. The information given above tries to use anchor sprint ids - but no where in the given example sets the anchor names and dates so it will fail 

Adding the is ability has been included for consideration in a our future plans (roadmaps) but there is no confirmation it will be added and no ETA for a release

@Colin Weaver or @Allan Maxwell - is there a JAC ticket number available for this future enhancement to the API where we can follow and vote for the suggestion? Thanks!
