How do you automatically set the Sprint field to the current sprint when creating an issue?

I tried to use a Post-function on the Create transaction but without any luck.

"Set Field Value to constant or Groovy expression Function" seems to be helpless as there is no way to retrieve the active sprint or the list of sprints.

Any idea?

I think the problem is that a sprint is not directly connected to a project, only to a board, which may have more than one project. The post functions can't tell what is the active sprint, because there may be many for the same project (there may be on project in many boards).

I don't know a workaround to that.
