Automatic Sprint Completion and Creation

Using the Automation Features within Jira. Is there a way to automatically close a sprint at the end date and create a new sprint of the same duration and lastly. Move all open issues to the newly created sprint.

Hi @Aaron 

Short answer, there is no built-in, out of the box JIRA feature to automatically start/close sprints in the Cloud version.

There is a suggestion to add this capability, which you can review and vote for here:


I did not see a way to automatically start/close a sprint on either the marketplace or using the REST API.  There may be a way to do this using scripting add-ons.  If interested on this route, please try a search on that approach.

Best regards,


Bill, how are you?  Long time no see.  I have someone that wants to automatically create all sprints for all teams through automation.  They are moving over from a different platform and are used to this feature.  They want all Scrum teams to have the same sprint number and to start and end of the same day.  Sounds like I need to do some looking around.  

Hi, Rick!  I'm well, and thanks for asking.

Are you on cloud or server/data center?  And if cloud, which version: free, standard, premium, etc.?  Regarding automatic sprint scheduling/management...

  • There are some posts in this community forum about how to automate these on server/data center using scripting add-ons from the marketplace
  • I believe there are some built-in capabilities for the cloud premium edition's advanced roadmap, although I do not know the details on that
  • For cloud, non-premium editions, sprints would need to be created and started at a project level.  It is not yet possible to do this with automation rules (suggestion to do so here

Best regards,

Hi Aaron,

We don't have an action available for closing/opening sprints in Jira automation. There is a public ticket tracking this feature request here:
