You can simply do this with the 'Edit issue' action.  All you need to do is to add the Sprint field and then select from the available options!




@andreas we worked with weekly sprints.

Any thoughts to do this automation based on the "active sprint"?

Also other projects works withs sprints too, so I'm not sure if +1 will work given Jira might add sequentially sprint ID for any project.

Hey @Sebastián Delmastro,

This has actually gotten much easier in recent versions. I edited my original answer above. You can now just add the Sprint field to the simple form and pick from the options there!


Thanks @andreas didn't realize you added this feature. Nice work!

Hi @andreas,  which Jira version has this feature? the one I have is v7.11.2  and it doesn't have the auto-suggestion filed. Thanks.

I have tried, but not possible to add to current sprint. Next sprint is no problem. But I would like to add the issue to current sprint when commenting on an issue.

@Ulrika Eriksson maybe you want to check permissions for active sprints. I have this rule that works with no problem on my Jira config (cloud) with the WebApp project.
