How can I change the end date of a sprint after it has been closed?

I left my office Friday, forgetting to close my sprint for the week. Is there a way to edit the end date/time of the sprint in order to correct my burndowns & statistics?

Hi Matt, as far as I can tell, the only way to change the end date is directly via database (table AO_60DB71_SPRINT), however you may consider testing it first in a test environmnet.

Is it possible to access the database for an atlassian-hosted Jira Agile account?

Hi Matt, OnDemand customer don't have access to the database

Updating the END_DATE in that table did not work for me. What other tables might I need to update?

This worked for us. Note that it's the START_DATE and COMPLETE_DATE columns that define the beginning and end of the sprint. I'm not sure what the END_DATE is. Maybe someone from Atlassian can illuminate us.

Also, be aware that the date is stored as a unix timestamp. To arrive at the correct value, you need to convert your desired date/time to GMT and then convert to a unix timestamp.

You may also need to restart JIRA to see the change in the UI.

Hey Matt,

This is absolutely achievable without DB manipulation - at least in the current version.

All you need to do is go to your sprint report, find the sprint you wish to edit via the drop down menu. Once you have that selected there's a more options / kabob menu icon (3 horizontal dots) which will allow you to reopen that sprint. At this point you can then visit your backlog and change the dates of the sprint and then re-close. 

Your current sprint (if you have one active), will remain unharmed, unedited and can continue to feature in active sprint view, upon the close of retro-active sprint.

Thank you

I am assuming by END_DATE you mean COMPLETED_DATE and not the last day of the sprint as defined when the sprint was originally set up.  AKA - start and two weeks later end...  The COMPLETED_DATE is the date when you hit "Complete Sprint"
