How to find out who created a sprint?

We have a sprint that has a very generic name and the tickets associated with it span multiple projects and boards.  Multiple teams appear to be claiming ownership of it, but I have not been able to find out who created the sprint.  The ticket history will tell me who added the tickets to the sprint, but now who created it.  Any ideas?

Hi CJ,

I'm afraid that information is not stored in JIRA. I took the liberty of creating an improvement regarding this request at:

Thanks Clarissa!

Super Clarissa :)

The answer from similar question (Jira Agile non-active sprint creator and created date) can give you some information.

Thanks Florjan! My results are a little troubling. The name of the sprint has changed, so I used the entitytype & entityid instead. This returned 38 results, and the earliest dated result was for a user who has no permissions to create the sprint.

I am not sure but I assume that the first entry in the "userhistoryitem" for the sprint's "rapid_view" represents the creator?

/* Find Sprint creator */
SELECT TOP 1 UH.ID, SP.NAME sprintname, USERNAME creator
FROM [My_Jira].[dbo].[userhistoryitem] UH

No. This shows who last viewed it or had started the sprint or accessed the board (neither the sprint).

Maybe you can find out where the sprint was created.

You just need to have the sprint ID and then use rest api:


This rest api will provide you the originBoardId of the sprint

After that, you can search for the board using rest api to get the name of the Board.


After that, you can search who is the owner(s) of that Agile board and for sure these people should be the ones that created the sprint :)


I cannot see the owner of the agile board nor the creator of the sprint.

The whole information i can get from /rest/agile/1.0/sprint/{sprintID} : 

  •  "id":111,    "self""",    "state""active",    "name""Sprint test",    "startDate""2020-09-21T07:25:54.812Z",    "endDate""2020-09-28T07:25:00.000Z",    "originBoardId"222,    "goal"""

and the whole information i can get from rest/agile/1.0/board/{boardID} : 

  • "id"222,    "self""",    "name""Tablerotest",    "type""scrum",    "location": {        "projectId"124255,        "displayName""EjemploAgile",  "projectName""Ejemplo SDLC Agile",        "projectKey""AwE",        "projectTypeKey""software",        "avatarURI""/secure/projectavatar?size=small&s=small&pid=124255&avatarId=1255",        "name""Ejemplo SDLC Agile (awe)"    }}


P.D (I am using jira cloud )

@Jose Luis Casarrubias   can you specify please how you was able to get the sprint creator or the owner of an agile board ? 


Thank you ,
