How can I trigger or Add new tasks on Sprint Start


I have a requirement to implement triggers on Sprint Start.

How can I check the tasks(a specific issue type) are included in sprint?


Can someone let me know the possibilities to implement this.


Is it possible to implement a process/workflow for Sprint?


Thanks and Regards,

There's no out-of-the-box way to do any of this. How do you plan on accepting this requirement for sprint triggers?

Are you using JIRA Cloud or JIRA Server? Are you willing to develop this yourself?

True. There is no out-of-the-box.

But only thing is how to do it.


I am using JIRA + Agile 6.2.3. And will be upgrading to JIRA Server 7.1 or above soon.

As per my knowledge, it is good to add while Sprint Creation.

While starting sprint, the scope is predefined.

So, instead of making change while starting, I am planning to do it at the time of Sprint Creation.


To achieve this I need to catch Sprint Creation event.

Need help to find the event and write script to trigger additional tasks.


Thanks and Regards,
