No issue_updated webhooks when moved to backlog

I have an add-on that subscribes to the “sprint_closed” and “jira:issue_updated” webhooks among others, and I have found that I do not recieve any webhooks when issues are moved to the backlog as part of a sprint being closed.

If I close a sprint with unfinished issues, I am asked if I want to move these issues to a new sprint or to the backlog. If I choose “New Sprint” I get individual jira:issue_updated webhooks for each issue which is great, but if I choose “Backlog” I get nothing except the sprint_closed hook which contains no information on what I chose or which issues were moved.

Is this a bug, or do I need to subscribe to something else to get the information I need? I need to know which issues were moved to the backlog.

Hi @niels,

I suspect this is not a bug, but rather a design gap. I will investigate though.

Hi @dmorrow, thank you. Let me know what you find out.

Hi @niels,

The responses I’ve received from my queries indicates there’s no event showing information about issues that go to the backlog during a sprint closure.

Hi @dmorrow, thank you for getting back to me.

So is this something you are planning on adding?

Im guessing this is a design gap as you suggested earlier?

Hi @niels,

I’ve created https://ecosystem.atlassian.net/browse/ACJIRA-2142 for this.
