how automatically start and stop sprints same day every week

Hi...I need some guidance about whether it is possible to automatically start and stop our sprints without any manual intervention. All our sprints start Thursday and end Wednesday the following week. Can something like that be accomplished with scriptrurner? Our JIRA instance is a Data Center instance with 2 nodes, version 7.1.4. Scriptrunner is 4.3.13

 

Thank you for your assistance

Hi Tomas,

Interesting question / automation smile

Probably you will need one or two ScriptRunner Service running a script every <Choose day>. The script for closing a sprint should be something like 

import com.atlassian.greenhopper.service.sprint.Sprint
import com.atlassian.greenhopper.service.sprint.SprintManager
import com.onresolve.scriptrunner.runner.customisers.PluginModuleCompilationCustomiser
import com.onresolve.scriptrunner.runner.customisers.WithPlugin

@WithPlugin("com.pyxis.greenhopper.jira")
def sprintServiceOutcome = PluginModuleCompilationCustomiser.getGreenHopperBean(SprintManager).getAllSprints()

if (sprintServiceOutcome.valid) {
    sprintServiceOutcome.getValue().findAll { it.state == Sprint.State.ACTIVE }?.each { updateSprintState(it, Sprint.State.CLOSED) }
}
else {
    log.error "Invalid sprint service outcome, ${sprintServiceOutcome.errors}"
}

def updateSprintState(Sprint sprint, Sprint.State state) {

    def sprintManager = PluginModuleCompilationCustomiser.getGreenHopperBean(SprintManager)
    def newSprint = sprint.builder(sprint).state(state).build()
    def outcome = sprintManager.updateSprint(newSprint)

    if (outcome.isInvalid()) {
        log.debug "Could not update sprint with name ${sprint.name}, ${outcome.getErrors()}"
    } else {
        log.debug "${sprint.name} updated."
    }
}

So the above script is a guide on how to update sprints. I suppose it will require some more logic, but you can build on this. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Hello Thanos...thank you for your reply...thats great!

I kinda get the logic behind that script but I do have a couple of questions. The idea is that the script has to "loop" and find all active sprints and close them so I dont see any looping in that script. And the sprint names change every week so I see in that script def SPRINT_NAME = "Sample Sprint 2", but I cant put a fix sprint name, can I? The sprint names change every week and the script should find all active sprints and close them the day the script runs, thats the idea.

 

Thank you very much for your help

 

 

 

Hey Thomas, 

I updated the script above in order to close all the active sprints. 

The script to make active future sprints should be very similar. You will need to 'play' with the states.

Hi Thanos...thank you very much for your help.

I will give it a try and let you know how it went. 

Thank you

Hi Thanos...I just wanted to let you know that I was able to test the script to automatically close all active sprints and it worked as a charm! Thank you very much for your assistance.

I will try to create one to activate future sprints and let you know if I have any questions.

 

Thanks a lot for your help!

Hi there...I have a question regarding this script....how can I see the sprints that were closed when the script runs? is there any log I can check to see if the script ran, if there were any issues, and the sprints that were closed?

 

Thank you

hi Tomas,

You can add in the each closure a debug message

log.debug "Issue key to be updated : ${it.key}"

And then you can check your Atlassian logs. First you have to set the debugging level for JIRA to DEBUG
