Hi @cmanikandan 

Where there any changes to your workflow? From the error, it sounds like Jira wants to change the issue’s status but cannot perform the transition because the current status has no link to the status Jira wants to move the issue to.

This is just my suspicion as to the cause and I cannot explain why Jira would want to transition such an issue (maybe because it is moving it back to your backlog).

There was not any changes made to the workflow @Ismael Jimoh  . Do not know why this error occurs.

Hi @cmanikandan ,

I tested this on a default workflow and had no problem moving an issue that was not completed to the next sprint.

Do you have either the fix version, resolution field or a transition condition on your workflow that prevents moving from the specified status without meeting the said condition?

I am honestly lost for words as to why you have the problem in question.
