how to update start,end,completed date of closed jira sprint

hpapoushado February 25, 2024

 seems i must reopen , change and once i complete it set the completed day to today, I want the completed date to be the end date, 

there is an explanation how to manipulate the DB to do so , but in cloud I understand I cant do this manipulation.

 

i tried Jira python , but it didn't update when sprint was closed , I hadto reopen it , run the script, it changes start and end , but again completed is today .

Hi @hpapoushado,

These sprint start and end dates are system dates. They are not meant to be manipulated in other ways then by executing the actions that set them, being starting and completing the sprint in Jira. 

Hope this clarifies!

i know 

but we ran into a problem , and we need to edit it :-(

 if there is a way to update start and end date , why not completed dates ?

Hi @hpapoushado,

don't bother. In an organization starting to do agile (and basically doing anything), making mistakes is indeed part of the process. Don't try to hide them, though - embrace them and use them to improve. 

Run a retrospective and document what you see and how you are going to change that. The goal of a scrum team is to deliver working software, not follow a rigid process.

Hi @hpapoushado 

As @Walter Buggenhout mentions this is bad practice.

People in your organisation need to look at their process, not due to process manipulate information in the system.

As you are running on Cloud their is no DB manipulation possible, as you don't have DB access.

its strange, if its available in DB manipulation, why not also in API ? 

i do agree its bad practice , its an organization that steps into agile and jira and still people do mistakes , I want to fix it.

Hi @hpapoushado 

DB manipulation only works on self hosted DC, not on Cloud.

In Cloud there is no DB access, also not via API.
