How to fetch Sprint Velocity and planned story points using Jira Cloud REST API 3?


I am using Jira cloud, how could I extract Sprint Velocity and Planned story points for a sprint using REST API v3.

In API documentation there is a reference of Jira expressions and context variable ('Sprint), can it be used in some way to extract this information?

Appreciate your help.

I am running into same problem. Has Jira updated any API to provide this information?

These values are not stored in Jira. These values are calculated based on the issue history and sprint start and end dates.
