Updating Issue's sprint: Finding a string Value in Webhook response



after reading many wonderful post here, i decide to share my solution to the problem of assigning Story to a specific sprint (not 'Next') enhance by cloning the story and moving all Sub tasks that are not in StatusCategory Done 

Rule Trigger: A comment in the main comment ' Split: [Sprint_Name'


1. Parse Latest comment and find the Sprint Name (why name?!, as the team leader          see it, I didn't want to update the rule for every Sprint ID)



2. Setting a variable (and a log) for capturing the the Comment


3. one last tweak for preatify


And I have the Assigned sprint name in a variable to use later.


4. After much research, i saw no solution how to get Sprint ID according to name, basically I was lookin for get SprintI D by Sprint Name logic.

I solved the problem by adding a web request to an End point in Jira

after playing with Postman for a couple of minutes(authentication mainly - ended up using basic. I am a Jira admin so creating API key was easy), the GET was complete and legitimate response.

BOARD ID is visible in the board public url  - making this dynamic will be the next phase for now it will be hard coded


I validated the response (also in Postman) and on to Phase 3... extract the Key-value for sprintName and Sprint ID


3. Parsing the Web response is where i got stuck for 2 days. read every documentation on smart value and lists - didn't understand it. smart values and JSON didn't help

and I assume Some one can help me here, because i dont have a plan. 

after cleaning a bit in VS code


What is need is how to look for a string: Sprint_2_id within the web response, and get the matching sprint name (sprint names are unique between board)

Any on can help??

Hi there,

Great work so far :) !

You can indeed achieve what you're after. 
So, after you've fired the Webhook, create a New Branch component and select Advanced Branching. 
For the Smart value, provide {{webResponse.body.<name of attribute containing the list>}} and assign it a variable name, such as Sprint. 

Then, create an Advanced compare condition, whereby;
First value: {{}} 
Condition: equals
Second value: "sprint_2_Id"

Then, you can access all required Sprint names, e.g. Log Action {{}}.
Hope that helps ~
