I am also seeking a solution for this. Having the end date of a sprint determined only by when the sprint was closed makes it impossible to preserve consistency in the reports for the reality of sprint periods if for any of many reasons the sprint is not closed on the actual date it ends.
However, the solution presented here does not work (for me at least). Clicking the sprint end date does nothing. Am I missing something?
LATER: My issue is different and is for Jira Cloud. Modifying the end date was no problem once I understood it better. The real problem is the sprint close date. If a sprint isn't closed on the exact right date...too bad. The Jira reports are off from what is desired. Permanently.
I can't seem to modify the sprint end date like you did, so reaching out for help...
Background: I'm using Jira Data Center v7.13.12
When I got to Backlog view for my Scrum board, to the far-right of the current sprint I do see the three dots "..." button you mention, but when I click it, the only option that appears is "Set sprint goal", nothing about editing or deleting the sprint.
Likewise, when I hover over the sprint name in the Backlog view, I do get a pencil icon, but when I click it, it seems to only allow me to edit the sprint name (i.e. puts the cursor on the sprint name), no visible option to edit the start and end dates of the current sprint.
So...any idea why that is and/or where else the Edit/Delete Sprint options may be hiding?
Would modifying the start time of an active sprint affect anything else? Sprint work was not started on the date eg jan 1st , but the Sprint was created and start date was set as jan 1st. Work only commenced in eg jan 7 . Can I caller the start date without it affecting anything else?
