Automation for Jira Cloud - Future Sprints

Hi all,


I set up a rule that creates an issue of a specific type once I create a new sprint.

Now the problem is, I have to set the sprint in the issue, but although Jira allows multiple open (not started) sprints, I can only set the first in line. 

I. e. I create sprint 1, 2 and 3, and the rule creates 3 issues in sprint 1.

How can I target the right sprint when I have multiple open (not started) sprints?

Hi @Mauro Bennici

please try to update your automation rule like this.

In "Create issue" action paste this text to the additional fields section:

"fields": {
"sprint": {{}}

If the rule is executed, when a sprint is created, the variable {{}} should exist and contain newly created sprint's id.

Just tested it and it works for me.

Hi Hana, 

thanks for the quick response!

It seems to work - in a way, the rule compiles and executes correctly, and I can find the issue if I search it from the filter page, but I can't see it in the backlog view until I start the sprint. 

The lack of visibility may be related to the rule bringing that issue to complete status as soon as it's created. 

Is there a way not to make the issue disappear?

kind regards

Hi @Mauro Bennici

hmmm... what about to create it, after the sprint is started instead of created?
