Auto Transition issue status when sprint starts or an Issue is added to that Sprint.


I want all issue status to be changed to "Sprint backlog" status when i start the sprint. 
or after sprint started, when i add an issue, its status should be changed to "Sprint backlog"

Checked with script listener - Fast rack transition in SR add-on, support told me that it will not work for sprint related events.

can somebody help me on this?
