Finding scrum board where sprint was created


  I've seen the answer to this question before but i can't seem to find it now. 

I need to find out what scrum board a sprint was created in.  I understand it requires executing queries against the DB but can't find the right query to run.

Is anyone able to help me with this?  Thanks in advance.

Hi Greg,

This is something you can do in Jira Server if you have access to the database.  But this is not as easily determined in Jira Cloud since those users don't have SQL access.   In my Postgresql instance I used a query like this to find all the sprints and list the board where they were initially created:

SELECT sprint."NAME" as "Sprint Name", board."NAME" as "Board Name" 
JOIN "AO_60DB71_SPRINT" sprint ON board."ID" = sprint."RAPID_VIEW_ID";

This won't show sprints that are created by the sample data process, technically they aren't created on a sample board, but auto generated.  This query will show any sprints created by a user, and the board listed is the board where that sprint was created.  Just for the sake of others that might find this, please be aware that sprints can exist across multiple boards simultaneously.

I hope this helps.


Thanks so much Andy!  Im on Jira Server and have access to the database so I will be able to do this.  My challenge will be converting the query to one that will work on MySQL as that is the DB we have in place.  This query looks basic enough I should be able do that with no problems.


Thanks again!
