Working with Sprints

(info) Sprints only apply to Scrum boards.

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. 

If the board filter contains multiple projects, the following takes place:

  • When you create a sprint on that board, you are able to add issues from multiple projects to that sprint — hence, the sprint can contain issues from multiple projects.
  • The created sprint will appear on the boards of the individual projects that are included in the board filter.

Go to the Backlog of your board to prioritise the issues in your backlog and allocate them to sprints. You can click a sprint's name to view the issues belonging to that sprint.

(tick) You can also use JQL to search for a sprint's issues, e.g. search by sprint name:

sprint = "February 1"

For details, see the JIRA JQL documentation on the sprint field, and the openSprints() and closedSprints() functions.
