Filtering JIRA entries by current month in sprint name? Edited

My team uses the sprint field of our tasks to track what month a given task is expected to be completed by. Is there any way to create a filter which uses the current month as text input for the sprint field?

e.g. the JQL filter for the current month is "sprint = 'May 2021'".

Is there a way to create a filter along the lines of "sprint = 'CurrentMonth() CurrentYear()'"

I've seen startOfMonth() used for certain queries, but it looks like this only applies to fields that use a date instead of text. There's also typically a prefix for each sprint to define which project the sprint falls under, so a complete sprint name will look something like  "PROJECTCODE MONTH YEAR".

The tasks themselves could be created several months in advance, so other fields like created or updated won't be useful.

Hi @acertainsubset 

I do not believe that is possible with out-of-the-box Jira Server.  You would need a marketplace addon to enhance JQL, or to use an automation rule to dynamically build the query based upon the current month, or export the issues to a spreadsheet for reporting.

What problem are you trying to solve by creating this JQL query?

Best regards,
