JIRA Agile: Is it possible to have different sprint lengths for different projects?

Normally we have 2-week-sprints, but we'll have a special project with 1-week-sprints. Is it possible to change that for this project only?

If yes: how?

Hi Werner,

You can indicate a start and end date when you start a Sprint.

It's perfectly possible to change this.

So short answer : Yes :)

Best regards,


Hi Peter,

yeah, I know that :-)

I guess my first entry was a bit misleading...

Its about the following screen that comes up when starting a sprint. I'd like to get a default of one week for a particular project.
