You should use the Jira Software Rest Api to add an issue to a sprint. You will avoid all possible problems:

I dont know the sprint id and how to move the issues/bugs to the current sprint. Can you please let me know how to assign the issue to current sprint?

@Fernando Bordallo Is there a method in the REST API by which we can add the issue to Current Sprint when it is created ? This will be an important addition. We use Bugsnag integration with Jira and able to assign bugs using custom fields. Adding it to the current fields on Top with high priority is an utmost requirement. If there is any current method, could you let us know ? Or else can this FR be added please ?
