How can the field release be sync'd to a sprint in Jira?

Hi there,

we are looking for a possibility to synch the RELEASE from Productboard to a specific sprint in the jira backlog. 

In Productboard is no field “sprint” and the only similar option is “release”. This field usually maps with “fix version” in jira, but not every project or product has a fix version. It would be ideal if this field could map with a sprint in jira.

F.e. in Productboard the release is “S 12, 19.01.”

Means, the ticket is for sprint 12 which is already scheduled in jira:

However, the ticket would only be mapped to a fix version, but a fix version in jira is also not really connected to a sprint. 

Has anyone an idea how a ticket could be added to an existing sprint in jira without our PO is doing it manually? And vice versa, if a ticket is not ready for deployment and will be removed out of the current sprints and moves to the following one, this should be reflected in product board.


Another question would be, how a ticket could be added to a sprint which is not created yet and creates a new sprint?


Thanks a lot for you help!

Hi @Anja Eigner,

You cannot map a Productboard release to a sprint in JIRA. These can only be mapped to fix versions.
