This situation: I created an issue (user story) under project X. In the creation screen, for the Sprint field, the autocomplete function offered me all kinds of sprints belonging to other boards/projects. To find out why this would be handy/logical, I added selected an existing sprint of project/board Y.
When everything was saved and I went to my board (linked to project X), I saw the sprint there and thought it belongs to my board (just with the same name). However when deleting the sprint, project Y lost its sprint. So it was the same sprint, not just in name.
Assuming I'm missing something and it's not a bug: what's the rationale of using / being able to delete a sprint belonging to someone else's board/project?
It's probably not a bug and indeed that can be the solution, however still it looks a bit strange to me why it'd be normal for people with a lot of permissions to use other users' sprints in own/other projects. For most people fortunately this won't be the case, simply because they don't have so many permissions.
I hit this same issue today. Someone moved a ticket to my project from another, and i inherited their sprint onto my board. I moved the issue to my sprint, but still their sprint showed at the top of my board (empty). I deleted that, and it deleted the other project's sprint, without any warning.
This is AWFUL behavior. All of it.
