Get id of the active sprint

Hi all,
I'm implementing an application that, using the JIRA REST API, automatically creates issues: I would also like to assign them to the current active sprint. To do so, I've retrieved the customfield_XXXX code of the "Sprint" field and implemented the following alike body request:

    "fields": {
          "key": "SP"
       "summary": "Sprint issue test",
       "description": "REST APIs are great.",
       "issuetype": {
          "name": "Bug"
       "customfield_XXXX": activeSprintID

Still, I need an automatic way to retrieve the ID of the current active sprint and I'm trying to use this REST API to get it:


which apparently does not work and links me to a dead link.

How can I retrieve the ID of the current active sprint to embed it in the previous body request?

Thanks all,

Hi @andrea.giordano  -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

If you are not using parallel sprints, you may get the current active sprint as you would with a JQL query: sprint IN openSprints() AND sprint NOT IN futureSprints() AND sprint NOT IN closedSprints()

Pleases substitute in your project key.


Best regards,
