Sprints are not "in projects".  A sprint contains issues that could be from anywhere that the board filter limits them to.  If a sprint could include issues from a project, then boards and issue views that show sprints will show the sprint as being related to the project, because it might be.

Hello @Md Shamshad Ahmed 

As @Nic Brough _Adaptavist_  says, sprints are not created in projects. Sprints are created in Agile Boards (i.e. Scrum boards). A scrum board is based on a filter that can reference multiple projects. Multiple boards can have filters that reference the same projects, so issues can appear in more than one board.

Issues can be added to a sprint by directly editing the Sprint field in the issue. Because an issue is not "locked" to appear in only one board, when editing the Sprint field directly Jira is not able to filter the list of sprints to only boards where the issue might appear and will allow the user to select any sprint defined in any board.

Sprints will appear in a board when either of the following is true:

1. The sprint was created in that board.

2. An issue has been added to the sprint that is within the scope of the filter for a board.

Also, it is important to note that Jira does not programmatically force sprint names to be unique. Multiple sprints named "Sprint 1" could be created in different boards. Because of this, is it a good idea to establish a policy that Sprint names need to include something that identifies the board or project to which it actually applies.


So, let us say you have Board A that references project ABC. In board A you create Sprint 1.

You asl have board X that references project XYZ. The owner of Board X could also create a sprint named Sprint 1. Or a user could directly edit issue XYZ-123 and set the sprint field to "Sprint 1". In that case, if there are two sprints in the system named Sprint 1, they may have inadvertently picked the Sprint 1 created in Board A.

You can use the Advanced Filter screen to execute searches for issues where...

Sprint = <name of sprint>

If there is more than one sprint with the same name, this will show up as you start typing in the name of your sprint. The results of the search will also show you if you have issues from other projects/board inappropriately added to your sprint.
