Custom Field 'Sprint'. Check the reasons for the missing dependencies on your server site.

Hello Team,

After performing a migration of some software projects, the migration assistant returns the following error:

ERROR SM project-import We couldn't import Issue SM-433 because of 1 missing dependencies: Custom Field 'Sprint'. This caused 19 other items to fail. Check the reasons for the missing dependencies on your server site.

After checking a bit I could see that the tickets related to sprints were not imported. Can someone help me?


Thanks in advance,

Francisco Gonzalez

Hello @fjgonzalez

Try creating a sprint in the source instance. Having a open sprint in the source instance could fix the error.

Best regards,

I have the same problem but having a Sprint active on source don't fix the error.

It's a bit disturbing that this still hasn't been resolved in the migration tool.

For anyone searching in the future - is a helpful article.


  1. Check if the field Sprint is added to the screens in the screen schemes associated with the affected projects, and make sure to add it in case it is missing.
  2. Run the Database Integrity Checker to check and fix any inconsistencies in the Server.
  3. Afterward, if the issue persists, try to migrate the affected projects individually. Bringing them all at once in a single Migration Plan could be causing dependency issues.

Hi @Jimmy Van this page seems to be specific to the Sprint field but this missing dependency error message can go far beyond that. Is there a more generic approach to troubleshooting these kinds of errors? 

For an example, please look at the question I raised here:

I have concerns about the implications of this error, outlined on that page.

Hi @Rob Horan ,

I linked this article and followed up as it's a very specific issue, caused by a specific bug.

You may like to check out for more other errors that can be independently troubleshooted.

With respect to the implications of the error, the specifics are best discussed with our team. Please raise a new ticket at for "Migration Support".
