How to view a previous sprint that has been closed?


In board view.....


In next gen project. 


I have no sprint report, if that helps to know which version I am using.

Incase anyone else is looking for this answer. The answer is you can't.

go to project setting under features toggle on the Report. 

Then go back to your project main page, refresh it and you'll be able to see the reports. 

Choose sprint burndown report

You know what, I'm sorry, but this is really getting a "What the hell do I pay you people for?" reaction from me.

@mheck Keep in mind that personal attacks against Atlassians or other users is not permitted on this platform. Some of your other posts have been removed accordingly and this one is also skirting the line. I understand you're frustrated but please keep our guidelines in mind and stay constructive. Thanks!

@Monique vdB I can't believe the basic function hasn't been implemented.  I can understand mheck's anger.

Go to Reports -> Sprint burndown chart (not available for all clients??)

Choose sprint from dropdown. (Ours only goes back to the beginning of this year.. nothing earlier than that)

Scroll down. Issues are grouped by : Issues added, Issues incomplete during sprint, Issues Completed.

Choose next print from dropdown.. etc..

Not intuitive, but workable. Hope this helps others.

Thanks, exactly what I needed!

Not sure what you're expecting your past sprints to look like.

Hi Brian,

You're correct that there's no way to currently do this in next-gen projects. We're really sorry for the inconvenience and while we are building up more capabilities in next-gen to support more ways of working, we can also do a much better job of setting expectations for what's available and not yet available in the new project types before creating them.

It would be helpful to understand what you're trying to use the sprint report for, if possible. Is it to reopen or edit a sprint? Access and view the completed work in the sprint? 

It's probably not the information you're looking for that you would typically get from the sprint report, but as a workaround that might help unblock some actions for you, you can find and edit issues in any sprint by navigating to the Search page, adding the "Sprint" field in the "More" dropdown button, and selecting your desired sprint name. This will give you all the issues in that sprint which you can edit as necessary from there (either individually or via "bulk change" in the top right). Hope that helps, and sorry again for the inconvenience - we're working hard to improve!

I need to report to my boss what have been done in previous sprints. It is surprising such a basic feature is not present. This is super bad.

Thank you,

It's almost 2020. When will we be able to view previous sprints in the Board or Backlog?

I literally cannot believe you guys shipped this.

Is this still the case? this issue is almost a year old now, and being able to look at past task is basic functionality.

+1 that is would be useful to have the 'Sprint board' not only for the 'Active sprints', but also for previous sprints.

Currently tickets in previous sprints are kinda lost in the Jira system.
And while the tickets are visible in the sprint report, the list of tickets looks very different than how the sprint-board looks. For example the 'lanes' are all gone.

It's October 1st, 2021. You still can't. Such a basic task!

Someone please include this user story to their board, maybe it got lost in a finished sprint.


I mean

project = PAB AND Sprint = "API Sprint 5" ORDER BY resolutiondate DESC

does the trick, but shall we just call it "clumsy" and leave it at that?

Three years and counting...

I just want to understand: if I get a paid plan, do I get this functionality?

This seems so basic I can't really believe anyone would pay for Jira, so it must be there (is it?) but, you know, at this point, I really don't know what to believe any longer.

I really wish I could click on a sprint in the Sprint Velocity Report and have it show me the Issues that were completed during that sprint.

This worked great for me in the advanced search:

`project = MLE AND status = Done AND resolutiondate > startOfDay(-2w)`

You can not view it in the board view. You should view it in the sprint report.

These are my only reports. 

It's a next-gen project type. Probably a terrible decision on my part. I just would have never thought that I would not be able to see my prior data.  I really don't want to pay for Confluence just to get my Jira data. 

Like # people like this

Yes, if you want to see old sprints, then you should move to a classic project.

Thank you. Not the answer I wanted to hear, but at least I know. 


What a terrible decision on Jira's part. I mean that's up there with new Coke and that weird Garth Brooks album.

Kind of cheeky to mark the issue as "Solved" when the solution is "You can't do this."

> you should move to a classic project


I tried to create a brand-new project, at no point I was asked to choose between a "classic" project and "one you can't do the most basic task you can think of"

Is this a matter of paid v free or deeper?
