is it possible to create an automatic workflow so that all stories that have the condition:

  • in the backlog
  • AND have status "Ready for Sprint Planning"
  • AND are assigned to a Sprint

--> are automatically moved to "Sprint Backlog" once the relevant sprint has been started [Button click = "Start Sprint" ]?

Hello @preethy sekar

Thank you for reaching out.

By the tags in your question, I believe you are using Jira Server and you would like to automatically assign a new sprint created for the issues that meet some specific conditions. Is that correct?

I'm afraid this kind of automation can not be done in Jira Server without using apps.

In fact, Jira Cloud has an inbuilt automation feature that can do exactly what you need. This same automation can be achieved in Jira Server by using the app below:

Automation for Jira - Server Lite

I'm not sure if using the free version you would have all the needed functionalities, but you can follow the steps below if you want to give it a try:

  1. Install the app
  2. navigate to the project where you want to apply the automation > Project settings > Automation
  3. Create the following automation, setting the JQL with all the conditions you need:
