Trying to enable 'Backlog' and 'Sprints' according to JIRA help. Unable to see "Features" link.

Jill I'm New Here Apr 29, 2022


I'm following JIRA support documentation about enabling Sprints and Backlogs for a team-managed project.


When viewing a project

and clicking on Project Settings

Then there is no link for Features in the side bar

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Note what it says just beneath the name of your project, and what the title of the documentation you've found is.

Only Software projects have features such as backlogs and sprints, and your project is a Business project!

I know, it's really easy to miss that, there's just... so... much... to read through.

If you want to use Sprints and backlogs, you'll need to create a Software project.
