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.

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