How to create a filter that will refer to Active (current ) Sprint?

I am creating a JIRA filter with below code. It refers  to Sprint number (current Sprint ). I want to have a filter that always will show me list of issues in Active Sprint so that will have no need to create a separate Filter criteria for each new Sprint


project = XXX AND issuetype in (Bug, Improvement, Story) AND status in (Open, "In Progress", Reopened) AND Sprint = 65 ORDER BY issuetype DESC, cf[10008] DESC, Rank DESC

You can do 

Sprint in (openSprints())

openSprints is a collection of all open sprints. Constraining by project etc may be good enough. We have many projects and hence many sprints so we had to create our own currentSprint("XXX") JQL function.

There is also "closedSprints()" and "futureSprints()"


I just found a previous answer

Thank you! That helped!

Nick, unfortunately it does not work for me - what I receive is "An option provided by the function 'openSprints' for the field 'sprint' does not exist." 


It happens while using 

Sprint in openSprints()

P.S We are using Jira Cloud

i had that error when i used "=" instead of "in". Also in JIRA cloud
