How can I find an issue that is in multiple sprints?

I am searching for a means, preferably jql, to find all issues in a project that are in more than one sprint.  Whether open sprints, closed sprints or future sprints - if there is more than one sprint associated with the issue I'd like to query to find it.


Maybe this is beyond the scope of jql and there is a plug-in to find it or I will need to write sql to do so.

Close, but it does not show issues that are in 2 or sprints that are  closed sprints.


I have an issue, for example, that is in 4 closed sprints.  I cant quite figure out how to make it show using jql.  Maybe this require a sql query???

Thank You, Ann!

select distinct count(cv.issue), p.pkey, ji.issuenum
from customfieldvalue cv
inner join customfield cf on = cv.customfield and cf.customfieldtypekey='com.pyxis.greenhopper.jira:gh-sprint' 
inner join jiraissue ji on = cv.issue
inner join project p on = ji.project 
group by cv.issue, p.pkey, ji.issuenum
having count(cv.issue) > 1

This should give you a start - it ran on my instance and reported as expected.

Hi Ann, Thank You!  I will give it a shot now.  

So - I have the same question, and here's a 'poor man's' way to get to the information. In my case I wanted to see all issues closed in the previous release and then determine how many of those issues took more than one sprint to close. 

I created a query that met the criteria (in the last release, closed) and also included the Sprint column in the results. The Sprint colu,mn includes all sprints that each issue was in, separated by commas.

I exported the results to Excel. 

In my case I just wanted to count the sprints per issue, so in Excel, I split the Sprint column into separate columns by the comma delimiter.

Then I was able to filter on the split sprint columns to see how many issues took 2 sprints, 3 sprints, etc. 

Tedious, but not as tedious as counting by hand.
