How can I update issue due date and start dates based on the sprint it's in.

I recently found this post regarding the topic. This works as long as there is only one Sprint listed in an issue or a story. However, when issues get delayed they often get pushed to a new Sprint. For example:

An issue starts in Sprint 8, but gets delayed. It will now have its Sprints listed as: Sprint 8, Sprint 9. 

The automation rule in the URL above will pick Sprint 8 instead of Sprint 9 whenever the Sprint value changes. How can I make sure that it will change the dates according to either the last Sprint in the Sprint list or the currently active Sprint (we only have one Sprint active at a time)?

Hi @Luc Evertzen welcome to the Atlassian Community!

When you completed Sprint 8, did you move the incomplete issues to Sprint 9?

When completing a Sprint there is a dropdown where you can select where to move the Sprints to. I use that feature. I think the problem arises because every issue has its Sprint history listed in the Sprint field, instead of just the Sprint the issue is currently in. It will retain all Sprints it has previously been in.

@Dave Mathijs Alternatively I would also be happy with the ability to select the last sprint from the array, for example:

{{issue.Sprint.endDate.jiradate}} -> {{issue.Sprint[-1].endDate.jiradate}}
