Import of the sprint field in issues from Jira

I am importing a project from Jira. In Jira, each issue has a sprint field with its own value. After importing the project from Jira, I see that the sprint field is filled only in those issues that relate to the active sprint. In other cases, in imported issues that do not belong to the active sprint, the sprint field is not filled in.

Please tell me if this is a bug? And how can I import a project with the sprint field filled in in all issues?

I'm Sergey from the YouTrack team.

Firstly, I should note that the Jira import doesn't sync boards and sprints' data. If some of this data is stored in a separate custom field instead, then sure, it can be imported just as a field value.

To provide more details, though, please share the following information:

  • a screenshot of the sprint data that that was imported

  • a screenshot of the sprint data that that wasn't imported but you expected it to

  • do you use YouTrack Server or YouTrack Cloud? If the former — share an archive of the logs directory (you can upload it to If the latter — your instance name or URL so that we'll examine the logs.
