Get Sprint Name for Issue


Obtain the name of the sprint that contains a specific issue.


As a project manager, I want to know the sprints in which several issues are located — allowing me to plan efficiently. I can use this script as part of a larger script to obtain this information and view it at a glance.

Good to Know

  • You can get other attributes from the sprint, such as the id, specifying the corresponding attribute instead of name. Check all available attributes at the REST API response documentation.

// The issue key
final issueKey = 'TEST-1'

// Fetch the issue object from the key
def issue = get("/rest/agile/1.0/issue/${issueKey}")

def fields = issue.fields as Map

// Get the Custom field to get the option value from
def sprintName = // Note change .name to .id to get the ID of the sprint.
