Hi Manikandan,

The script below will create an issue and it will add it to the sprint that started and triggered the event.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.config.PriorityManager

def issueFactory = ComponentAccessor.getIssueFactory()
def loggedInUser = ComponentAccessor.jiraAuthenticationContext.loggedInUser

def newIssue = issueFactory.getIssue()
def project = ComponentAccessor.projectManager.getProjectByCurrentKey("SSPA")
def bugIssueType = ComponentAccessor.constantsManager.getAllIssueTypeObjects().find { it.getName() == "Bug" }
def highPriority = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(PriorityManager).getPriority("High")
def reporter = ComponentAccessor.userManager.getUserByKey("anuser")
def sprintCF = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Sprint")

newIssue.setSummary("A summary")
newIssue.setCustomFieldValue(sprintCF, [event.sprint]) //add the issue to the sprint that just started and triggered the event
//... any other fields

Map<String,Object> newIssueParams = ["issue" : newIssue] as Map<String,Object>
ComponentAccessor.issueManager.createIssueObject(loggedInUser, newIssueParams)

So eventually your listener will listen for Sprint Started event and the script will be the above.

I'll agree with Anton that a use case will be more helpful. 

PS. In your question's title you say sprint create event which is a different event than the Sprint Started Event.

So your custom script listener will look like

Hope that helps,

Hey Manikandan,

The listener should be a Custom Listener

I have a similar requirement but unfortunatly can't find any Sprint..Event.
I'm using Jira Software 7.0.4. with ScriptRunner 5.1.6

Did this event appear with a later version?



@Christian Bär do you solve "event.sprint" problem?

@Manikandan K

@Thanos Batagiannis -Adaptavist- custom listener dosn't work for me.

Hi @Christian Bär (sorry for the late response) and @rozhdestvensky 

What if you navigate at <base_url>/rest/scriptrunner/latest/events?perRepo=false, do you see any Jira Software events ?

Also can you please clarify what you mean when you say "the script doesn't work for you", in which sense ? Do you get any errors in your application logs ?

Hi @Thanos Batagiannis -Adaptavist- 

do you see any Jira Software events ?

Yes, a lot.

Do you get any errors in your application logs ?

In line "event.sprint" I have an error "No such property: sprint for class: com.atlassian.jira.event.issue.IssueEvent". Becase SR's binding event is IssueEvent type.

Hi all, 
I do not remember where I needed it and if, how I solved it - unfortunately.

Hm, I think I used a button somehow to trigger my code manually. 

But I remember that I did not see any Sprint...Event as given in the screenshot above, so that was my question then.

But thanks for the hints,  even if late ;-)

Cheers, Christian

Hi @rozhdestvensky 

Ok I see, so this is a 'false' alarm because of the Static Type Checking

therefore you can either ignore it, or you can cast the event variable to the right type. Something like 


def event = event as AbstractSprintEvent

Hi @Thanos Batagiannis -Adaptavist- 

I've found the same solution some hours ago :)

All works well.

Am i right - you want to create issue in some project when clicked "Start sprint" on the board?

Could you please provide more details - what problem are you trying to solve?

Yes. You are right. I would like to create an issue, when i click Start Sprint. a Default issue type "Feature" will be added to the Sprint. 

I tried its not working as expected in the script runner. Need some help on it



Sorry for adding this comment now, I'm trying to achieve the same thing but I'm getting the following error at 16Screenshot (522).png. please help
