Jira Automation, get notify when a task is added to the current sprint Edited

I started to compare the number of task at the beginning ( ex: 30 ) and if that number get incremented > Notify me (slack).

But I can find a way to do this Jira Automation tools so I just have

sprint in openSprints ()

Anyone have an idea ? I'm starting loosing it.

When you add a task to a current sprint, jira prompt a window saying that your Sprint Report will be altered etc.. If I can be hooked to that event it will be awesome.

Hi Ron, welcome to the Community.

So this isn't perfect as there is a hole in the logic in that it could falsely send an email for an issue that was in the sprint before it started in the scenario where someone edits the sprint field and maybe removes an older sprint. Note, I have not tested so LMK what you find.


Thank you Jack for the quick answer :) 

What a good idea to check the "sprint" value change.
Let met try it for a few days and I will come back to you.

I think that hole could be tolerated.

Do you know how to get the "modifier" name? Because he/she could be different from Assignee and Reporter.

Works for my need ! Thank you again @Jack

I want to add watchers using jira automation rules, but I can't find the way. For me this is really the same rule as mentionned above but this is not working as I can't find value on my ticket which is corresponding to my need. 

I have a ticket and when someone is adding a subtask, I would like to add specific watchers to this new task. How can I do this?
