JIRA Agile features are now available in the standalone application JIRA Software. Please upgrade to JIRA Software to get all the latest and greatest features. Visit the Migration Hub for more information, or see the Administering JIRA Applications documentation.


A sprint — also known as an iteration — is a short (ideally two to four week) period in which the development team implements and delivers a discrete product increment, e.g. a working milestone version. 

In JIRA Agile, go to Plan mode on your board to create a sprint, choose issues and start a sprint. Then go to Work mode to work on issues and complete the sprint. For completed sprints, you can view the Sprint Retrospective Report in Report mode.

(Note: In JIRA, sprint is a searchable field — see the JIRA JQL documentation for details.)
