  1. Click the Agile link's down-arrow in the top navigation bar, then select your preferred board from the resulting dropdown menu.
  2. Click Backlog.
  3. Hover over the sprint name or date field, click and type the new name or date, then press Enter.
    Note, the Start Date and End Date are not specified until you start the sprint.

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?

Thank you.

I am having the same problem. This solution is no longer valid. I think the documentation needs updating for 7.0.

Actually, it works when I hover on SOME sprints, but not the current Sprint.

But it worked for me.

You need to go to backlog, identify the sprint. Just below that the start date and end date is available. Go there and update.

Went back to backlog and was able to identify and edit sprint

To modify an active sprint end date, 

  • Go to backlog
  • Click ... of the active sprint. see image below.

Click edit sprint, you can edit Sprint name, start date, end date and goal.

This answer should have been the accepted one. Thank you.

That did the trick, Thanks.

Note that the date changes may take a few minutes to reflect in your Sprint board (from my experience).

To update the Sprint end date in JIRA v7.6

* Go to backlog

* Click on the field you want to update (ex: if you want to update the end date, click on end date)

I was able to change the end date but it never updated on the sprint board.  Any ideas?

took about half an hour to update.

I tried the solution you offer. 
but my main question is how can I update future sprint dates. 
The dates effects my Gantt
