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.
You may want to create multiple, allowing you to plan several iterations ahead.
This page only applies to Scrum boards that have Ranking enabled.
Note that you can only create a new sprint if you have the 'Administer Projects' permission in all projects included in this board's filter. If the filter includes a global condition (not specific to a project), it means that you need to have 'Administer Projects' rights on all the projects in the JIRA instance. An example of such a filter is
label = 'test' OR project = DEMO . In this example the
label condition is applied to all the projects in the system and theoretically it can return issues from any project in the instance.
If you would like to have more than one active sprint at a time, please enable 'Parallel Sprints' in Labs.
To create a new sprint,
Your new 'upcoming' sprint will be added to your board, below any other future sprints.
