Return Sprint name from Jira Issue/Filter and list sprints in a given project

Hi - I'm using Jira and Confluence cloud. How do I get the sprint name to display in confluence for a jira issue/filter in confluence. When I add the Sprint in display options, it is always null.

Ultimately I am trying to display a table that lists sprints for a given project, with the total number of issues in the sprint, number of open and number of closed issues in the sprint and a due date. Is that even possible.

Hi Sheila,

You will have to go through all the Agile Macros available to see if one fits your needs.

To do that, "Edit" the page you need, click on the "Insert More Content" button and then "Other Macros". Just type "agile" and they will appear.

Please let us know if you found the one.


Thanks. The other question: How do I get the sprint name to actually display in confluence for a jira issue/filter in confluence. I see it as a column to add in Display Options of the Issue/Filter but when I add it, it always displays null (there's no data in the column). I also verified I'm not filtering out anything that would cause this to be null.

I'm having the same problem as Sheila. When I choose to display Sprint column in a Jira Issue macro table, it is always blank. If I use the same filter in Jira it displays correctly. If the only workaround that can be suggested is to look for a different macro that works correctly then I guess I should raise a bug report. Unless anyone knows of one that is already raised that I can watch?

Same issue here. I could not find a way to display the Sprint names. This was raised back in 2012 and still no resolution.

Do you have the bug reference please Louis? I'd like to watch and perhaps vote for it.

Sheila, it looks like you've stumbled onto a bug - you can workaround this problem by using the filter macro instead of the JIRA Issue/Filter Macro.
