Manage Sprints Permission in next-gen JSD projects

G'day Atlassian community!

My name is Abhinaya Sinha and I'm a product manager for Jira. I'm pleased to announce that we have launched MANAGE_SPRINTS permission for next-gen JSD projects.

As you may know, this is a JSW permission that allows you to perform certain sprint related actions - more details here. Following this launch, if you happen to have both an active JSW license and an active JSD license, this permission will now show in your next-gen JSD projects. You can create project roles and grant this permission to them. Users belonging to these roles will be able to use functionality of this permission.

In particular, this permission will allow you to manage sprints containing next-gen JSD issues. Even prior to this launch, you could pull in next-gen JSD issues on a JSW classic board. However, you couldn't do sprint related actions - creating, starting, completing, and deleting sprints among others, if the JSW classic board contained next-gen JSD issues. Now, with the launch of this permission, the loop is complete - you get to exercise the power of boards on next-gen JSD issues. This enhancement will be particularly useful to customers who use boards to pull in and manage issues from multiple projects, and in particular, next-gen JSD projects. 


How to access "Custom Roles" in a next-gen JSD project

  • You access custom roles by clicking on the “manage roles” button under Project Settings > Internal Access 


  • If you haven't created any roles so far, you’ll see just the 3 system roles: "Administrator", "Agent", and Viewer, on the dialog box that comes up on clicking on “manage roles” button. If you used the "Custom Roles" feature, which we announced earlier this year, you will see the roles you created in addition to the 3 system roles. 
  • To create a role, click on the “create role” button. Give the role a name, an appropriate description, and the permissions you would like to associate to that role. You'll see the permission to manage sprints toward the bottom of the "create role"modal. Optionally, you may choose to assign this role to users in your project. 


  • Checkmark the "manage sprints" permission and any other permissions you'd like to grant to this role. Optionally, you may choose to assign this role to users in your project. Click on "Create" and users belonging to this newly created role will be able to do sprint-related actions on next-gen JSD issues. 

We hope you'll like this enhancement and look forward to your comments. 

Thank you!
