Jira Sprint in Jira Align


 I thought sprints shows up only when it is active in Jira and have a story but that is not the case with all the teams. In some of the teams though the future sprints are not active in Jira it is showing up in Jira Align. Let me know when exactly sprints are seen in Jira Align

Hi @Vandana Kurapati ,

Jira Align syncs all sprints (closed/active/future) from Jira based on the boards mapped to Jira Align in Administration -> Jira Management -> Jira Boards.

Jira Align will pull in all past, current, and future sprints based on the date from which you chose to sync data.

  • For example, if you decide to sync the last year of data, then all closed sprints from all synced boards going back a year will be pulled in along with the current sprint and any future sprints already created in Jira.
  • This allows for stories planned in future sprints to show in Jira Align in the correct sync sprint in places like the Program Board, the stories grid, Roadmaps, and others.
  • PI Planning in Jira Align wouldn't be possible if Jira Align didn't sync with future sprints in Jira, because by default, all sprints being planned are in the future.

Here is an article from @Tim Keyes that explains the syncing:

Here are some great articles related to sprints and the connector:
