List of sprints in the select field

When creating and editing a task, the "Sprint" select is on the right side. I have a long list of sprints there, from many different projects. Some of these projects are closed and archived. How can I close all unfinished sprints to keep this list clean?

How do I find all the active sprints in Jira? There is a way for this?

Hi @Bartłomiej Banaczyk 

   Try with a filter

   Create a filter using the following JQL and save it.  The query will get all issues that are in an open Sprint:

      sprint in openSprints() ORDER BY Rank

so you will know all the sprints that you have open or active


Thank you very much!
But in sprints on my list, I don't have any tasks. It didn't show up after this JQL query.

Try the next steps:

1.- Create a new board that uses the filter created earlier

2.- Open the board and go to the Backlog view to see a list of all the open Sprints and the issues in the Sprints.  You need to use the Backlog view

It's work! Thank You very much!

Hi @Bartłomiej Banaczyk 

You seem to be asking two questions:

  1. How can I bulk-close open sprints?
  2. How can I only show sprints relevant to my project now in the sprint field edit?

I do not believe either of these are possible at this time with out-of-the-box Jira.  There are many suggestions to help with your question about limiting the list of sprints shown.  You may view/vote for the issues in this list:

Best regards,


Yes and no. A long time ago I created a sprint called TEST in a test project. I was learning how to use Jira then.

I deleted the test project. 60 days have passed long ago. It is not in the basket. Sprint, which I did then named TEST - still shows up on the select list.

For example, I would like to close or delete it. I don't know where to find him.

I voted on your problems found!

Ah, you have an orphaned sprint for a deleted project.  The steps @Vero Rivas described will help with that.  Here is another post with detailed steps on removing that type of orphaned sprint:
