How to start a sprint with Jira Cloud?

I have Jira cloud, I created a project, and a bunch of issues. Assigned issues to people.

Now we want to create a sprint and fill in the work we've been doing, but I cannot figure out how to create a sprint, or how to access the backlog?

Ok, anyone following this....

I made a Jira Core project on Jira Cloud.

To make sprints you need to have Jira Software NOT Jira Core.

-Go into settings/applications and install Jira Software

-Go into project settings and change type to Jira Software, project will be converted

-Go into search and click on "show all boards" and you can create a new board

-Now you see your backlog and you can create a new sprint.


Taaaa Daaaaa

Boards are promised for Jira Core. How do I create a board in Jira Core? Can you explain step by step, please

Hi Shane,

Are you using a Scrum board in your project? It sounds as though this is missing, which is what allows you to setup Sprints and view them separately in your Backlog. You can create a new Board for your project and you should find that this allows you to separate your work out into Sprints. Hope this helps.

Ok, how do I create a new Board? You would think that I go to the 'boards' view and click 'new board' but that doesn't exist.

I'm trying to follow these directions : But there isn't any boards when I search View all boards (step #3)
