I deleted a sprint that had open cards/user stories by mistake, I guess. I didn't realize I deleted it until days later when I tried to assign a user story to it and couldn't find it in my backlog. From what I read the open stories moved to the next sprint below. I have a gazillion stories in my backlog and it would be so much easier if there is a way to recover that deleted sprint and restore the stories assigned to it. Note - I did not "finish" the sprint, I deleted it. Thank you!!
Another potential fix for this is to do the following:
- Create a new sprint with the details from the old sprint
- Run a JQL which pulls any issue updated by the user who deleted the sprint.
Sample: project = PROJECT AND issuekey in updatedBy("USER", -1d)
- Bulk change these issues into the new sprint
You'll lose your reporting for that sprint and can accidentally pull some extra cards unintentionally but this worked for us.
We should really have a confirmation pop up before you can delete a sprint that has assigned tickets or that is in progress. i just deleted a sprint instead of closing it and i did not even get the time to react or undo
I just deleted another team's sprint accidentally! :'(
You can actually recreate the new Sprint and pull the existing Jira stories that were part of that Sprint back into this new Sprint.
To locate those stories/tasks etc. you can either go to those issues any link issue like version/ Epic / or parent / child link if any is available and locate these issues and assign them to the new Sprint.
ok, this happened with me today where I was just trying to edit dates and by mistake deleted the sprint.
first sight of losing sprint gave me rollercoaster euphoria. However, gladly I did create few sprint buckets which came in handy as deleted sprint items just fell from a deleted sprint into next one. I was vehemently searching jira items in the backlog but I did remember few ticket numbers that were automatically spotted in the next sprint bucket. All I had to do was starting new sprint and that resolved the whole issue.
Jira needs to add an extra check to confirm with a dialogue box - are you sure you want to delete this sprint? yes then enter jira admin credentials
There is no defined feature to restore deleted sprint, however, there is a workaround which I figured out:
Create a new sprint (same as deleted one)- Sprint_Recover
Create a JQL to fetch all issues filtered by 'not in' other sprints
In the same JQL filter by updated >yesterday and you will get all the required issues
Bulk change and set sprint = Sprint_Recover
This will restore more than 95+% issues and all you filters and dashboard will display data
hope this will help!
Hi @Nehal Dixit and Team,
Once you delete something in Jira you have lost that data forever be it issues, attachments or any of the configuration objects.
Thats what inspired us at Revyz to build an app for simplifying backing up your cloud Jira instance which includes issues, attachments, comments, configuration objects and more.
Please visit our market place page to see all things we can help you with protecting your data in your Jira cloud instance - Revyz Backup & Restore
Additional information is also available at - Revyz Backup & Restore for Jira Software Cloud
Also note Atlassian recommends that you backup your data per the SaaS Shared responsibilities
I would love to get your feedback on what we are doing and how to improve given an opportunity.
