Agile option is not available to create Sprint


I'm really stuck, please help me with navigation how I create new Sprint, or go edit existing spring, I'm on trial cloud installation, when I started I had option to edit my Sprint, but now  I can't do it.  After examine help I see that all  helps articles start with "Click the Agile.."  But now I have only those options:

Dashboard  -  Projects - Issues - Boards – Create    options   ,  could not find Agile under any souse . I read something about restart, but I dont' think it's applicable to trial cloud.

Agile is the name for an agile related add-on for older versions of JIRA. This has evolved into "JIRA Software", which provides the "Boards" option now.

To create a sprint, you need a scrum board, so create one of those and you'll find the sprint creation stuff at the top of the backlog

Start thinking maybe I'm close to existing Sprint and I can't edit it ?????

Thanks Nic !!!  Sorry can you direct me further from "u need a scrum board", how I can set it up?

Tx much

Tx Nic again, I got it, now I understand your  <Adaptavist> :_)  I still need understand structure and concept of Board inside whole JIRA software.

A board is a view of a set of issues that you want to work with.  It's a layer on top of a JIRA system (which is a load of issues in projects).

I see now that you can create new Board only with Project, I assume new Sprint also can go with new Board 

Tx Nic, I moving well now to what I neee:  I want to full control of all structure, like to have multiple projects under 1 sprint, have a board for multiple projects,

No.  It's easy to create a project and a board at the same time, but it's just as easy to create a board from an existing project, or, more importantly an existing filter.  If you run a filter for "project in (a, b, c)" and save it, you can use that as the fitler for a new board, and you'll have multiple projects being shown in one board.  Then you can have a sprint for that board and include lots of projects.
