@Lakshmi Priya -

Here is a better way for you to identify the Sprint ID -

Via the Active Sprints UI (for active sprints) -

1) select the specific sprint and you will see the ID for the sprint in the URL above


Via Advanced Search -

1) Use the following JQL = "Sprint = xxxx", you will see a dropdown listing of sprint names where at the end of each sprint you will find the sprint ID.


Lastly, sprints is designed for Jira Software project and not for JSM project by design.

@Joseph Chung Yin , The Id in the URL of the Board shows the ID of the board and the one on the report shws the id of the sprint ..

Your are not on the Active Sprints UI in your second image.

Hi @Lakshmi Priya

On the Backlog, right-click the 3 dots next to the Sprint statistics and choose 'copy link'.

Paste it somewhere and you will see that the URL ends with 'sprintId=123'.

That's it: you got your sprint ID.

Thanks @Rik de Valk .

I was able to find out at the Sprint Report tab under Reports similar way..
