How to intercept JIRA Agile Events?

I am trying to get more visibility and control over JIRA Agile Events such as:

  1. Story is added to Sprint
  2. Story is removed from Sprint.

From what I can tell when you drag a story to a sprint only the Sprint field changes but this does not fire a Update event that I can work with.

Ideally what I would like to have is a control similar to the one that exist for a transition - conditions, validators and post funtion or map it to existing transition where I can put that

This URL (you may have seen it already) talks about the permission that is needed which in turn could relate to the event that is happening. https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/AGILE/Adding+an+Issue+to+a+Sprint

Taking a look at one of the workflows though for a Agile project only the Generic Event is fired off. So you might either need to change the workflow or use the Generic Event to trigger the notification.

I am quite familiar with the documentation. Edit is not handled as a workflow transitions although it is similar to global transition.

In your comment "...talks about the permission that is needed which in turn could relate to the event" please evaborate. I don't see how a permission can be related to a event. I hoped that an Update event is being fired similar like when you do regular edit but it is not.

Hi I am also trying to capture event programatically during dragging and dropping of an issue under a sprint. Is it possible.
