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.

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 ...
