Can we automatically assign issue at the time of creation to sprint instead of manually drag & drop?


We have created a sample project and there are five Issue Types: Story, Epic, Task, Change Request and Bug for that particular project. We have created a sprint in the project.

We have created an issue in that project. Issue created should be added automatically in the Sprint rather than manually dragging and dropping into the sprint.
Is above scenario possible? If yes, please provide us with the steps / demo.

Not really.  You're not expected to be creating new issues directly into a sprint.  If a sprint is running, it's scope change and hence the wrong thing to do.  If a sprint is not active, you're supposed to draw items into it during planning.  During planning, you'll be using the backlog view, where there is a "quick create issue" link under the issues in each open sprint so you can create issues directly in the sprint.  (Of course, there is not one in active sprints, because that means you're not planning)
