Is there a possibility to manage Sprints for several teams, when they working with separate jira-projects?
We have about 20 Scrum-Teams. They all should work with the same Sprint-Names and Dates. The Scrum-Teams would like to manage their own Versions and Components. Therefore, they need their own Jira-projects.
Is there a way to define the sprints, Start and close Sprints by a central role for defined Jira-Projects?
Thanks for your help and tipps.
Yes, we are doing this at the moment.. our approach is as follows:
- create a new issuetype "sprint marker"
- create a sprint mgmt project & agile scrum board, in which "sprint marker" issues are created
A project XXXXXX that follows the "company wide sprint" frequence, is typically defined as follows:
- consists of regular issue types (not sprint marker)
- agile board data is based on issues from the project itself + additionally includes sprint marker issues issues , e.g.
Issuetype = "Sprint Marker" OR project = "XXXXXX" AND issuetype in (Epic, Story, Analysis, Bug, "Test Issue") ORDER BY Rank ASC
- agile board gets a convenience quick filter, to hide the sprint markers on plan & scrum boards, e.g.
Issuetype != "Sprint Marker"
Next, you create future sprints:
Because the agile boards include the sprint marker issues, the sprints to which they are assigned will become visible in the planning mode view of the agile scrum boards & can be used to allocate the regular project work to.
The sprint marker issues are managed by our JIRA admin team & are closed at the end of the sprint, just before sprint completion.
Note that additional access rights on the 'sprint mgmt project' are required to complete/start sprints, so only limited users can still perform this.
Our various project mgrs take this into account & ensure required scrum activities are done by sprint completion & before the next sprint is started.
That sounds very good and would also solve the problem, that the Sprints are shown in the Agil-Boards. I was quite sure, that the sprints are separatly in each jira-project.
I will go on to test your solution an i will reply at least on the end of the week.
Thanks a lot!
Yes, thats also very important to us. We have over 20 ScrumTeams and all should follow the same sprint-time-scale as all results are deployed on the same time. Unfortunately the dependencies are very large.
We started with one Jira-Project and more and more teams wanted to work with Jira-Agile. That works pretty well. But now there are a few requests as described in the question.
Now i will have a look on othe questions and answers in this site. That could really help to organise the hole instance.
