Automating Sprint to ticket

I am currently trying to automate a task.

When a new sprint is created, a new change ticket will be raised in a different project. (that's the part that is working)

New problem for me is, i need to link each issue created in the sprint to said change ticket, I can link the issues manually, but i cant figure out how to automate the process.

Hi @Kasper Ell ,

You can achieve that using the following automation rule :

In order to filter the issues in the newly created Sprint, you can use the following JQL in the Branch part of the automation :

Sprint = "{{}}"


Does it solve your problem ?




Thanks for the reply!


When i try to execute the rule pasted below i get following error:

 Branch rule/Related issues

Error searching for related issues. This is most likely because the following issues don't have a related issue of the type you specified. Try narrowing your search to only include issues that contain links to related issues:

NO ISSUE: "sprint = SEC Sprint 2" - Error in the JQL Query: Expecting either 'OR' or 'AND' but got 'Sprint'. (line 1, character 14)"


 I am not sure if the problem is that i want to create the new issue (change ticket) in a different project?


I am a complete beginner to Jira, and have only been using it for 2 weeks.

Oh my bad, I gave you an incorrect JQL request, the correct one is the following : 

Sprint = "{{}}"

I edited it in my original answer too :)
