How do I find issues which were moved out from a sprint

For finding issues that spill over from one sprint to next, I tried this JQL posted by a user, but it did not work for me

project = name AND Sprint in openSprints() AND Sprint in closedSprints()

When you close a Sprint in Jira Software, the stories you didn't finish are either marked as done in the closed Sprint, or moved to another Sprint.

An issue can't be in 2 different sprints. As a result, your issues are either in a closed Sprint, or in a new one, which explains why your query doesn't return anything.

You should try either project = name AND Sprint in openSprints(), or project = name AND Sprint in closedSprints()


Let me know if it helped,


Hi @pmeghrajani  -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

The query you noted works after the current sprint has started.  If it has not yet started, please try:

project = myProjectName AND sprint IN futureSprints() AND sprint IN closedSprints()

The sprint field is a list, so it will contain all of the sprints which an issue has been in, with one exception: if you put an issue in a future sprint and then remove it before it starts, the sprint value is removed.

Best regards,
