Can I get the field 'Sprint Goal' added in the JIRA Rest API?

Where is the goal stored in JIRA?

It appears after creating a sprint - we can define the Sprint Name and Sprint Goal. We were hoping to get this 'Sprint Goal' field.

Ah, that's been added to Cloud recently.  The REST API has not caught up with it yes, but I don't think it will be long.

Thanks Nic. That sounds great. Would you have an idea of the timeline on when we can expect to have this? Even a rough estimate would do.

No, I'm afraid I'm not an Atlassian with access to their development plans.

The API functionality was added for JIRA Software Cloud in late October 2016. Examples were not added at that time but will be added soon to update the documentation at

The sprint goal can be added/updated as part of create, update and partial update for sprints.

POST /rest/agile/1.0/sprint/{sprintId}

{"goal":"example sprint goal"}

Kind regards,
JIRA Software
