How to automatically add label to an issue if it's added to the sprint after it already started?

So I want to automatically add a label to the issue when I move this issue from all issues to the active sprint. Is it possible and how do I do it? 

Best wishes

Hi @Nikita Krivda 

There is no built-in way to find these added issues using JQL, and there is a suggestion to add this capability:

If you have the ScriptRunner add-on, there is a function you may used to find them:

If you do not have that, and instead have the full version of automation for Jira, you could do this with automation rules:

  • Create a rule...
    • triggered on sprint started,
    • which adds a label to each issue, something like "Planned"
  • Create a second rule...
    • triggered on field value changed (for sprint),
    • add a condition to check for the sprint IN openSprints(),
    • add a condition for labels does not contain "Planned", and
    • then add the label "Unplanned"

Best regards,


Hi @Nikita Krivda ,

You can achieve this by creating an Automation Rule. @Bill Sheboy already provided the steps for that. Please create the Rule and let us know if you need further help.
