|Jira Agile 6.3
The user is unable to add new sprint to the Rapid Board after a current sprint has already started. The new GreenHopper should cater for the users to plan several sprints ahead.
The Start Sprint button is disabled and the following error appears on the Rapid Board when hovering on the Start Sprint link.
The main reason is due to having cross-project in the Rapid Board the user might not be aware of the following reasons. As mentioned in the Starting a Sprint documentation:
- Only one sprint can be active at a time. While a sprint is active in Work mode, the user can still plan subsequent sprints in Plan mode, but he/she won't be able to start one until the active sprint is completed. (You can, however, drag and drop an issue in Plan mode onto the active sprint.)
- The user need to have the JIRA 'Administer Projects' permission in the project(s) whose issues are to be included in the new sprint.
- Board Filter Query contain 'OR' condition that will select all projects (if the user do not have all JIRA 'Administer Projects' permission)
