Assigning a build ID for Sprints

Currently, we create a version for each sprint, because we can use Build ID in the description for each iteration/sprint.

However, that is a bit cumbersome and I do believe sprints might be used instead. But in that way, we cannot record easily the build ID the sprint resulted into (other than renaming the sprints).

Is there no other way to achieve that?

I think this approach would work if you only do a single build within the x-week sprint duration. 

Given that the sprint name (in JIRA 7.9 server version) is quite short, it would restrict how much build information you could provide there.



By contrast, we use the sprint name with the format: "<current year sprint number> (<release>, <sprint end date>)"

So for example, if we are building release 2.0.1 during the 15th sprint of 2018 and the sprint ends on 2 August, the sprint name is: "2018-15 (2.0.1, 2 Aug)".

The advantages of this approach include:

1. You can filter on sprint names (when assigning issues)

2. You can ensure (manually or via JQL subscriptions) that issues are correctly assigned to sprints for the correct FixVersion (software release)

3. You can see what is the latest date an issue will be closed (according to your Definition of Done).
