Custom Fields for Sprints

There are several threads that discuss this issue but they are a few years old. I don't think this is possible, but would like to confirm.  I'd like to know if I can create a custom field for sprints (not issues).  The use case is that we want to track the head count for each team for each sprint (it can vary slightly sprint to sprint)  That way you can do sprint reporting based on team size.

No, you cannot create a custom field for the sprint, custom fields are only for issues. A workaround would be to use the sprint goal field to track the head count, but you would not be able to report on it.

Hi @Gene Schulze 

One work-around for no sprint-level custom fields is entity properties.  You may manage them with automation rules, the REST API, or by using an add-on from the marketplace.  Please look here to learn more about this feature:

Thank you for your response @Bill Sheboy .  I was hoping for something a little simpler, but I'll take what I can get,

Hi @Bill Sheboy 

I've tried `PUT /rest/agile/1.0/sprint/{sprintId}/properties/{propertyKey}` from rest api doc . But it does not work.

curl --request PUT \
--url 'https://{}' \
-d '{ "hello": "world" }' \
--header 'Authorization: Basic {}' \
--header 'Accept: application/json'
