Connecting to Jira and Pulling Sprints and Initiative



I am creating a dashboard to connect to Jira. The Power BI Connector for Jira is not authorized to be used in my organization. I have used a query similar to this to make a connection to Jira: All data not displayed in Power BI from Jira (


However, I am unable to get the Sprint and Initiative values there any information on how I can display those values within my dashboard. 


Thank you.

While I recommend using the Power BI Connector for Jira here is a workaround :
You can make API calls directly to the Jira REST API to pull data. This often requires a bit of development experience, but you can use Power Query in Power BI to make the API calls.
I think Sprint data can typically be found under `customfield_XXXX` (the specific ID can vary).
For example, you can use Power Query to make a GET request to a URL like this to get issues from a project:
Replace `your_jira_domain` with your actual Jira domain and `YOUR_PROJECT_KEY` with your project key. Replace `customfield_XXXX` with the custom field ID for your sprints and initiatives.
