Sprint appears to have merged across two different projects


We started Sprint A (Project A) in the morning, and then about an hour later started Sprint B (Project B). Noticed that all the sprint data (goals, name) for Sprint A changed to be the same.

When looking further the sprint id was the same.  We think it was because a ticket from Project A was added to the Sprint B (backlog sprint that once started became active sprint). 

Is this expected behaviour?

Reason I'm checking is at the same time we had had a new add in enabled that shouldn't have had anything to do with sprints but timing is suspicious and we had never had sprints combine like this before.

@Emma Dowdeswell each sprint should have its own ID.  Sprints can have issues from multiple projects and it will not impact the sprint.  I doubt that it is the app that is causing the issue but it could be.  I am wondering if the sprint was created in the morning and someone just added issues to it thinking that they created a new sprint.  Could that possibly the issue?

@Brant Schroeder yep realise they should have a unique id. Is why we are so confused.  For our sprint starts they get actioned while on a online meeting.  So in the first one we were in Project A backlog and started Sprint A.  Then approx an hour later in a separate meeting with a separate person in charge of the board we had Project B open in it's backlog, clicked on start sprint, went through the sprint goals etc and started sprint.  

When I looked through other similar queries I think what happened was that someone had accidently assigned an issue that was already in Sprint A to Sprint B, then when Sprint B was started it somehow just edited Sprint A because of the issue that was in both sprints.

But not 100% sure ;)

@Emma Dowdeswell I have never heard of anything like that.  Could be a user error or maybe you found a bug.  I would be concerned if it continues to happen.  I do not think it is your app but unless you can recreate it, it will be difficult to troubleshoot.

Adding a note to this...

Normally an issue can be assigned only to one Active or Planned sprint, plus any number of already closed sprints. You typically cannot have one issue assigned to one Planned or Active sprint and then simultaneously assign it to another Planned or Active sprint. The issue would be pulled from the sprint it was currently assigned to and added to the selected sprint.
