Hi, we have more (6) SCRUM teams, all of them work on same application (Old Spaghetti non-modular application) and so we have one product backlog for them. We start with 1 sprint for 1 team in JIRA Agile, so we always run 6 sprints in the same time. But then we can not constraint counts of issues in columns and calculation of velocity for each team is not very straightforward.
Is there any other way to solve our situation?
Thanks for all suggestions.
I would create 6 different agile boards (1 per team, since each team commits to their own sprint scope).
The data can be pulled from the same 'product' project: It's possible to define board data filter either on assignee (assignee in role / team members list + assignee is empty) or based on a specific field value (component, a custom-field (cfr. Christian), ... )
Also, I don't think you need to have 6 separate sprints as such.. at least not if all teams work on the same frequency (e.g. same sprint length, start & completion).
You can include common (sprint marker) issues on all boards & assigned to 1 specific sprint, in order to make the same Sprints appear on all boards / for all teams.
Note that such an approach does require that the sprint completion, planning & new sprint start are all happening in sync across teams.
Finally, since reports (velocity ) are based on agile board definition, the report data should be as expected.
