How do you locate the sprint field value in a next gen project?

I'm trying to bulk change issues in a next-gen project. I would like to move multiple issues (currently in a backlog with no sprint) to a future sprint. When I enter my sprint name in the "Change Sprint" field on the operation section, I receive the error sprint field value must be a number. I'm having trouble locating this number, in place of the sprint name field. 


How do I find the sprint field value number for each of my future sprints? I can only find the sprint name and it does not match the field value. It is not on a CSV export either.

Hi @Chris Romero ,

I couldn't find the sprint's ID value exposed in the UI either but I was able to find it via a JQL query!  In my example, the sprint called "Test Sprint 1 - 2019-05-02 18.27" is ID 1.


If I click on the sprints really long name, my query changes to the format "sprint = 1" and returns the expected issues.

I know you said you have Cloud, but if any Server users are reading this, you can also get this info from the database.

Hope this helps!
