I can't create a Scrum board for my project

I have created a project with a simple workflow and default field layout.

The field list includes Sprint but I can't create a board, nor can I create a sprint. 

Is there any way to avoid having to create a new Scrum project ?

You should be able to create board for any kinda projects. You can also create using JQL. Go to <base-url>/secure/ManageRapidViews.jspa and click on create board on the top right corner. 

 

Make sure you have manage sprints/project admin permissions for the project.

Thanks Sri. A board I had previously created had moved to my profile as it didn't belong to a specific project. It's all clear now!

Hello Phil,

   If you don't want to create scrum project, you can use Basic Software development,  project management , etc project types.

Thanks Laxmi. A board I had previously created had moved to my profile as it didn't belong to a specific project. It's all clear now!

you certainly should be able to create a board and subsequently a sprint. Are you on Cloud or server? if on cloud an new UI do the following:

  1. Click the magnifying glass (search)
  2. Find the sidebar section for Recent Boards and select View all boards
  3. Click the Create board button in the view all boards screen

Thanks Jack. A board I had previously created had moved to my profile as it didn't belong to a specific project. It's all clear now!
