Configuring JIRA: Setting Remaining Tasks to "Pending" Upon Sprint Closure

Hazim April 4, 2024

Hello everyone, I'm new to JIRA and I have a question. How can I configure, or what do I need to configure, so that when closing a sprint, the remaining tasks are set to "Pending" status?

Hello @Hazim 

What problem are you trying to solve by setting the status on the issues to "Pending"? Why would you not leave them is the status that they were in when the Sprint was closed?

If you insist on doing this, it could be done with an Automation Rule like this:

This would only work if each not-complete issue in the sprint was in a Status that had a transition to the "Pending" status.

In the example above you would:

- substitute in your Scrum board in the trigger where I have "TPN10 board"

- substitute in the Statuses you use for "completed" issues where I have "Completed"

- substitute in "Pending" where I have "Review".
