Over time, we have had many Agile boards, which have had sprints added to them.
These sprints were never closed, but the boards have been deleted.
Now, when we add jiras to new sprints, we see a list of these obsolete Sprints.
Is there any way that we can clean/delete/remove these old Sprints?
Thank you :)
A good way to get rid of those Sprints would be to simply close them since it would not take more than 5 minutes to close 10 Sprints. These would be the Steps:
1 - Create a new issue in your site, at any project (XYZ-123) > Add it with one of the Orphan Sprints through the issue view
2 - Navigate to any project board > Click in the board menu > Click to create a new board (Scrum or Kanban), you can allocate the board at anywhere:
3 - Navigate to the board you created > Board Settings > Edit filter Query > Configure the board filter to return only the issue you created and save it:
issuekey = "XYZ-123"
4 - Navigating back to the board, you will see that the Sprint will be appearing in the board, so you can just click to complete/delete it
5 - Once the Sprint is complete/deleted, add the issue to another orphan Sprint and keep deleting it
6 - Once all the Orphan Sprints are complete/deleted, Delete the board and the issue you created
P.S: If there are too many Orphan Sprints, please open an internal ticket with Atlassian internal support so they can properly handle it in a more efficient way:
Let me know if you still have any questions.
