Hi Christophe,


I was able to accomplish this with a bit of regex that filters out the extra data. Hope this helps.


issues_in_project = jira.search_issues('project=ALPHA AND SPRINT not in closedSprints() AND sprint not in futureSprints()')

for value in issues_in_project:
for sprint in value.fields.customfield_10006:
sprint_name = re.findall(r"name=[^,]*", str(value.fields.customfield_10006[0]))
print sprint_name

Does issue.fields.customfield_10006['name'] work?

no :-(  it doesn't

neither issue.fields.customfield_10006[x]
