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:

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
