Cannot create an issue from and sprint board


I recently activated the sprints feature in one of our projects, and I noticed the +Create Issue button which used to appear on hover in the column boards does not appear anymore.

The project is question is a team-managed project.

Is there a way to allow creating issues directly from the board in to the current sprint?

@Eli Blitz 

Create issue in board is available for team managed project

It's not available in company managed project 



Thanks @Pramodh M 

My project is a team managed project, I'll add that to my question.

Did you perhaps mean the other way round?

Hi @Eli Blitz 

Here's the reference

It is only available in Backlog Page

In Kanban board you will get the Create Issue in To Do Sections

Thank you @Pramodh M .

Do you know why this can't be done when sprints is enabled?

@Eli Blitz 

As of now, there is no feature to create the issue directly from the Sprint board.

Issues can be created from the Backlog as I have shown in the Image

If you need to raise a feature request to create the issues from the Sprint Board, please raise the request at

Let me know if you have any queries

Hi @Eli Blitz ,

welcome to the Atlassian community!

Please verify that you are administrator or member for that project. If you are a viewer you correctly can't create issues.

If so, create issue should appear on your board :


Hope this helps,


Thanks @Fabio Racobaldo _Herzum_ 

I am an administrator, and this only started after I enabled the sprints feature. Before that I was able to create issues from the board.

ok @Eli Blitz , so you should be able to create issue from a backlog and not on the sprint status view
