JQL for last close Sprint

Please let me know do we have any function to retrieve the values from previously closed Sprint using the script runner ?

The following function should be able to help you to


previousSprint(board name)

Shows issues that are members of the last completed sprint.

Thanks Tarun

When i use below query it returns the value

 issueFunction in aggregateExpression("Total Estimate for all Issues", "originalEstimate.sum()", "Remaining work", "remainingEstimate.sum()")  and sprint in (126)


But not for this one. What did i miss in my JQL

 issueFunction in aggregateExpression("Total Estimate for all Issues", "originalEstimate.sum()", "Remaining work", "remainingEstimate.sum()")  and issueFunction in (previousSprint("Olympians Board for Story (AA + BB+ CC+DD)"))


I dont want to update the query every Sprint

What is returned by 

issueFunction in previousSprint(<your board name here>)

When i run this query 


issueFunction in (previousSprint("Olympians Board for Story (AA + BB+ CC+DD)")


I get no issues found. Is anything wrong in it ?

Are you entering the correct board name as you have to just enter the board name and whats "AA , BB, CC, DD" . What kind of naming is this?

Also please validate in the board that you have an closed sprint in the board as the "previousSprint" returns issues from last closed sprint.

I have updated the board name  with below 

issueFunction in (previousSprint("Olympians_Board_for_Story"))

Still it shows no issues found. I have reports and velocity chart being populated for this board

If the board name is incorrect it throws an error message. It seems to be an issue with script runner 

I found the issue in my jql. 


When i exclude "(" in front of the previous sprint it worked. Thanks Tarun


issueFunction in previousSprint("Olympians_Board_for_Story")

Good to know that it's now working. Please upvote/accept the answer if it works for you.
