Select sprint



When changing the sprint field, all active sprints appear.

How can I change that to only show the active sprint in the project the issue belongs to, not all active sprints from other projects?

Same thing for Epics. When changing the epic link, epics from other projects appear as options.

Hi @Gui Ávila 

You cannot change these behaviors with out-of-the-box Jira cloud.  Here are the suggestions to make these drop-down lists project specific, which you can view and vote for:

Hi, unfortunately if we want to assign task to a sprint all sprints from all projects are listed, even if those projects are deleted (no longer exists or sprints are completed). This list should be helpful, but it provides so much trouble for us. 

Real case scenario: You add a new task, a new idea, with a perfect description but... you choose incorrect sprint and you loose your task. You can even assign a task to deleted project's sprint - O_O WTF?

This is the reason that we will no longer consider JIRA as our core task management system. Because I'm the only JIRA user left, I hope that one day, Atlassian finally fix this field. Till then bye JIRA :(
