When I attempt to delete an empty sprint, that has not been started yet, get error: This issue cannot be edited because of its workflow status. Sprint has not been started, is on the Agile planning board, and is currently empty with no issues in it. I want to delete the empty Sprint from the Agile Planning board. When I attempt to delete the empty sprint get error: This issue cannot be edited because of its workflow status.
Wanted to point you towards this article.
The sprint appears empty because issues that appear within the Agile boards green ("Closed") column do not appear in the planning phase.
When tickets are "closed" they cannot be updated, which is why the error is occurring when attempting to delete a seemingly empty Sprint.
If you do a JQL issue search "project = *ProjectName* AND sprint = *SprintToBeDeleted*" you'll see a list of the currently closed tickets that are associated with that sprint.
You would either need to re-open these tickets, or change your workflow temporarily to allow the editing of tickets in the closed status.
