Post function to assign issue to current sprint

I am hoping to add a post function for the transition from any status to In Progress that would automatically assign the issue to the current sprint. This would be helpful to ensure that issues are not lost. Occasionally, someone will start working on fixing a bug without telling the rest of the team and will mark it as "in progress." 

If need be, I am willing to update this post function every time we switch between sprints (although I would prefer not to need to do that.) I already tried adding a post function with the sprint name + ID and kept getting an error message when I moved issues from to do to in progress.

Hi ,

Do you have any existing script to start with? I would assume you are using ScriptRunner?

Hi @brbojorque

I was able to use a post-function to automatically assign someone to the issue without needing to write a script. I thought there might be a simple solution that would let me at least enter the name/id of the sprint and update it every two weeks.

I haven't used ScriptRunner before, so I will need to take some time to learn how to write scripts in Jira that if that is the only option. 


Is there any update on this question?  Can issues be auto-assigned to the Current sprint in a post-function in Jira Cloud?  Asking for a friend (user) :-)

I have the same need. Would expect to find a postfunction, but it doesn't seems as an option. 

Anyone who have this problem solved?
