Hi @Lykemtheng He ,


As per my knowledge, this feature is not available out of the box. 


You can achieve this with scrip runner plugin.

nextSprint(board) - will give you issues of the next active sprint .

Please refer below link for more details.

Hi @Lykemtheng He ,

with the JQL: "project = ABC and sprint in futureSprints() " you don't get the number of future sprints but all the issues present in future sprints. So, the result is a set of issues and not simply a number; then you cannot add 1 to it.
A way to get the number of sprints + 1 is to do it programmatically (eg. using ScriptRunner).

thank you so much.

Hi @Lykemtheng He 

As you're on Jira Cloud, the correct answer is to get an app that provides JQL extensions you're looking for.

With standard JQL, you can only get a list of issues and export them to Excel for further processing. This works if you want to do a one-off analysis. If your use case is more dynamic than that, look beyond standard Jira.

Standard JQL doesn't easily allow it, but you can quickly find the results using our professional indexing service JQL Search Extensions


Finds issues that are planned for the next sprint. Pass a Jira board name or board id as an argument.

issue in nextSprint("ACME board")

issue in nextSprint(10)


Check out the documentation for more examples.
I hope this helps!

thank you so much
