Perform a bulk change to stories and attempt to modify Sprint. It is a text field and validation states Sprint Id must be a number.
1. Please make it a dropdown.
2. Allow pasting of Sprint name if Option 1 is not possible.
I have reviewed past comments on this topic and it seems to have been an issue for many years. Also, no easy way to find a Sprint ID.
There are a couple of feature requests which cover this:
You’re right, it’s not super easy to find the Sprint ID - we have a KB article here describing a couple ways to find it:
I know it might be disappointing to hear that these haven’t been implemented yet but please take a moment to vote to show your support. You can add your own suggestions and use cases in the comments too.
The KB article referenced above no longer works. "Active Sprint" is no longer a link, so there's no way to check it's ID using this method.
I can see no way at all to find the Sprint ID in JIRA. I need to transition multiple issues to a sprint using bulk edit, but bulk edit requires a Sprint ID, not the Sprint Name. If there's no way to find the Sprint ID, how can I use bulk edit to change the sprint? Why bother having a feature that requires information that's not available on the site?
The easiest way that I have been able to find the sprint ID, is to use the Issue Navigator and under the Advanced search, search: Sprint = "~Sprint Name~" and then when I press Enter, it gives the Sprint ID.
However, this is an unnecessary amount of effort that could easily be cut out with your above-mentioned dropdown.
Hopefully, all the votes show that it is a much desired and needed change.
I hope this helps in some way.
Another hackish way to find the sprint ID is to use you browser's developer tools. For example in Firefox, go to the Backlog or Sprint view, right-click on the sprint title and select "Inspect element". Then in the DOM-tree go a few DIVs up until you find one with the `data-sprint-id` attribute, its value being the sprint id.
