Problem Solved: moving Issues from Sprint to Sprint

Kaysaff Tal May 5, 2023


I have been writing Jira Automation with python for a few years now.

Lately, I started to use Jira Automation to try and fix my R&D TL issue with moving issue between Sprints, when there are subtasks not done.

This ability is critical! (in real life, not all sub tasks are closed every sprint)

So I took on the Challenge of fixing this - "no problems I said" ( we will come back to that...)

In a Pseudo code:

  1. Trigger a rule from a comment
  2. Parse the comment  - save in s SMART Value
  3. Transfer Main issue - Clone to the rescue :)
  4. Iterate on the Subtasks and switch to the New Parent
  5. Assign the Parent to the sprint

a big shoutout to @Stefan Salzl for his super important comment for using a 'For EACH' that did the trick.

Anyone interested in the long solution?
