Script Listener to notify of Sprint field changes in OpenSprints()


We want to be notified when a sprint field is changed.

We know this can be accomplished with the following query in the condition of a script listener:

it.field == 'Sprint'

However, this triggers when any sprint field is changed which is not what we want.

We only want this to be triggered if the ticket is in an OpenSprint() and dont know how to do this.

Any help on this would be great.

Hi Adam,

A colleague of mine helped me put this one together (thanks Ash). Please try this (untested):

import com.atlassian.greenhopper.service.sprint.Sprint
import com.atlassian.greenhopper.service.sprint.SprintIssueService
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.onresolve.scriptrunner.runner.customisers.PluginModuleCompilationCustomiser
List changeItems = event?.getChangeLog()?.getRelated("ChildChangeItem")
def issue = event.issue

def sprintIssueService = PluginModuleCompilationCustomiser.getGreenHopperBean(SprintIssueService)
def user = ComponentAccessor.jiraAuthenticationContext.getLoggedInUser()

def serviceOutcome = sprintIssueService.getSprintsForIssue(user, issue)
def sprints = serviceOutcome.get()
def isActiveSprint = sprints*.state.every{ it == Sprint.State.ACTIVE}

def isSprintFieldModified = changeItems.any{
    it.field == 'Sprint'

isSprintFieldModified && isActiveSprint


I have not used this yet.

Are you sure this will trigger the email when a change is made to a ticket in an open sprint?

It seems to be a lot to add to the initial code for such a small request.



Hi Adam,

As mentioned it is untested, so I'm not sure but I'll leave it to you to test it in your staging environment.
