How to view a previous sprint that has been closed? Edited

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. 

Wow. Why?

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!

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.

Hi Harrison,  is there any status update on sprint reporting capabilities please? 

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.

What search page???  

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.

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.

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.
