How to grant access to a sprint

Hello everyone,

This article will explain to you- how to grant access to a sprint in a Jira Software project.

The 'Manage Sprints' permission in Jira Software allows users to perform the actions like 

  • Creating, Starting, Completing, Reopening sprints
  • Reordering, Deleting future sprints
  • Editing sprint information (e.g. sprint name and dates)
  • Moving the sprint footer

In order to grant a user access to a sprint, we need to make sure that the user has 'Manage Sprints' permission in all the projects returned by the filter query applied to the board from which our sprint originates.

Tip: Please make sure that you have written a simplified filter query for your board. A query like “assignee = user1” should be avoided since this query will return all the projects available in your Jira instance. To handle such a case, you will have to provide the user 'Manage Sprints' permission in all the projects in your Jira instance. A better query will be “project = "PA" AND assignee = user1”

 

Now, let's see the best practice to assign the 'Manage Sprints' permission to users:

  • Create a new project role called Sprint Manager (or select a name as per your choice).
  • In the corresponding permission scheme, assign the 'Manage Sprints' permission to the Sprint Manager project role.
  • Associate the permission scheme with the corresponding projects in your Jira instance.
  • Add the appropriate users to the Sprint Manager project role in the corresponding projects

The user(s) should now be able to access the sprint.
