I have Google and found a way to add an issue to any existing Sprint (completed, open, or future) via REST APIs.
While the JIRA Agile REST APIs are available in the JIRA REST API browser, I can't seem to find documentation for the same APIs. I have been wanting to know how to remove an issue from a sprint via the REST API and have been so far unable to find a way to achieve that.
Any suggestion or pointer is appreciated. Thank you in advance.
You can remove it by sending a PUT request to /rest/greenhopper/1.0/sprint/rank
with the following (sample) data
The way I found that was by just opening the "Network" tab of my Chrome browser developer console and looking at the XHR request generated when I remove issue from sprint
Note that the JIRA Agile REST API is not public, so this might break across versions.
I figure it out. To remove from a sprint the sprintid needs to be omitted and addToBacklog needs to be set to true.
This worked but does not solve my original problem unfortunately: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-38026
