So I was playing around with a test project, and added a sprint in JIRA Agile. When I was done, I deleted the project, but the sprint is still showing up everywhere. How do I get rid of the sprint? The sprint was active when I deleted the project, so perhaps that's part of the problem.
So I finally figured out a way to do this. The only place I was seeing the sprint was in the add or edit issue screen/popup. When I would click the "sprint" box, it would show the old sprint from the old project/rapid board I created. I went ahead and took an existing rapid board with an existing ticket, and assigned it to this sprint. This made the sprint active for that rapid board. From there, I was able to close the sprint, which is good enough for me because I just don't want that sprint showing up in my dropdowns anymore.
I just had a similar issue: I had my current sprint as active (say, Sprint 5), plus an old one (also showing as active, say, Sprint 1).
I couldn't close Sprint 1, because it did not show on the Scrum Board.
It turned out that there were no issues in Sprint 1 at all, that's why it was invisible.
Sprints are not directly linked to the project, that's why.
Go to a board where the sprint appears, make sure you have admin rights in all the projects in that board and then delete the Sprint as mentioned here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/AGILE/Deleting+a+Sprint
This happened to me too, and all I had to do was go to the backlog of another scrum project, create a new issue and assign it to that sprint, and then I could see the sprint in the backlog and was able to delete both the sprint and the issue I had created. Good workaround.
