How to change status on adding to sprint

When adding an item from the backlog to a sprint, within the backlog page on a scrum board, I wish for the status to change from Project Backlog to Open

  1. "adding an item from the backlog to a sprint" triggers generic event. You may need to add your own custom event for the Sprint custom field update only. 
  2. Then you can register IssueEventListener Listener configured for above event
  3. Listener triggers workflow transition for the issue in response to custom field change.

Im not sure if cloud allows all of that

looks as if you cant register IssueEventListener using cloud 

Hi vitaliy zapolskyy,

Can you please provide more details of how were you able to implement this ? This would be really helpful.

Did anyone find a solution for automatic transition after sprint starts?
