Restore a deleted Sprint

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!!

Nevermind folks.  I found my answer with the help of related content on the right listed.  I wish there was another option besides rebuilding from the database.  Shucks!

Like # people like this

they 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

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.
