How to add multiple issues to different sprints using Jira Command Line Interface (CLI)

This article explains how to add multiple issues to different sprints using Jira Command Line Interface (CLI).


  1. Create a CSV file with two columns with titles: jql and id. The information specified here is used as parameters for the addIssuesToSprint action. jql is used to list issues to be added and id is for the sprint IDs. As an example, consider the following

  2. Combine runFromCsv and addIssuesToSprint actions with file parameter to add multiple issues to different sprints.

    --action runFromCsv --file "sprints.csv" --common "--action addIssuesToSprint"

This example works because the CSV file contains the data that is needed for the addIssuesToSprint action.

  • It is recommended to test this scenario in a non-production environment.
  • Run the action with --simulate parameter to verify the behavior before deploying on a production environment.
