Automatically move a task to a sprint based on due date


We plan sprints way ahead and I would love to have an automation that will move a task to appropriate sprint based on due date. 

For example, we have Sprint A (from 1 of Nov till 14th of Nov) and I have created a task with a due date 10th of Nov. It is possible to have an automation to modify the sprint field to Sprint A if the due date is in the timeframe of the sprint?

Thank you in advance!

Hi @yuliia_soury 

Are you using Jira Cloud with the Standard or the Premium license?  If you are using Premium, there may be something in advanced roadmaps to help with this.

For Standard license, what you ask may be possible with an automation rule, although it would be a bit slow to run and a bit complicated to maintain.  Essentially it would need to:

A risk for this rule is it circumvents the scrum framework idea of planning, where the team evaluates the goal and the work to achieve it.  Thus you need to figure out a way for the rule to not make changes if the team has places issues in a sprint and then changed the due date later.

Kind regards,

Thank you Bill!
