Jira python and custom field Edited


I want to get only the Sprint's name of an issue using jira-python

when I Type


the answer I get is 

['com.atlassian.greenhopper.service.sprint.Sprint@2119aef0[id=111,rapidViewId=14,state=FUTURE,name=Sprint 18-S08,goal=,startDate=<null>,endDate=<null>,completeDate=<null>,sequence=111]']

How can I just get 'Sprint 18-S08' ?

I tried issue.fields.customfield_10006.name but it doesn't work

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]
