Announcement: Removal of the Manage Sprints permission temporarily from JIRA Software
At Atlassian, we put a lot of effort into getting new features working as they should before these features are released to you, our valuable customers.
Occasionally, and admittedly, we don't get it right.
Due to a number of issues raised relating to the new Manage Sprints permission, we've decided to remove this new functionality from JIRA Software Cloud temporarily. We'll reintroduce the functionality when we're satisfied that these issues are completely resolved.
The Manage Sprints permission will still appear in the Permission Schemes page, but the permission will not be effective until we reintroduce the functionality. Until then, the sprint checks in JIRA Software will use the 'Administer Projects' permission, as they previously did.
What you need to do
If you're a JIRA Administrator, and you've already added users to the Manage Sprints permission, and you want these users to continue managing sprints until the functionality is reintroduced, you'll need to add these users to the Administer Projects permission. Any users added to the Manage Sprints permission can remain added. However, the permission will not allow them to manage sprints until we reintroduce the functionality.
We apologize for any inconvenience. We're working hard to resolve the raised issues so we can bring this much-requested improvement to JIRA Software.
If you have any questions or need help with making changes, please raise a support request.
Thank you for your patience,
JIRA Software team
