Sprint in openSprints() also displays closed sprint associated to issues in JQL query results

i'm using Sprint in openSprints()  in my JQL filter but as some of the stories in my current sprint were carried over from the previous sprint,  there are multiple sprint names displayed in the sprint column in the filter results. This seems like a bug as it should only be returning current sprint. Any suggestions?


If a certain story was in previous and now carried over to current sprint or in multiple sprints, it will always be shown in results for those sprints. So when you view an issue, it would show multiple sprint names against it because it was carried over across multiple sprints. And that's not a bug. 

Think of it this way, I need to know how many issues were not completed in a given sprint and were carried over to next sprints, or issues that took multiple sprints to complete. So the sprint field in an issue would show all the sprints that the particular issue was part of.

Hi @Lucy Cornish 

No I believe that this is correct. You need to separate out the query from what is shown in each column.

Your query - you're asking it to list every issue that is in an open sprint, which it is doing.

Then, what are you showing in the columns - for the sprint column, it will correctly list all sprints that an issue has been in.

So I believe that this is the correct behaviour

thanks. Is it possible to just show the active sprint?

Hi @Lucy Cornish 

If an issue is in this list, you know that it is in the active sprint, but the info in the "Sprint" column will always show all sprints it's been in.

What are you trying to achieve that this is stopping you from doing? Or, why is that a problem for you? I'm trying to understand where your concern / question is coming from

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
