Can I share sprints between scrum boards?

I'd like to have multiple views on the same set of sprints (different boards used for different user roles). Is this possible?

Absolutely, this works today. The board decides what sprints exist based on the sprints that are attached to the issues included in the board's filter. For example, if you have two boards with the same filter they will see the same sprints but can be configured with different swimlanes, filters etc.

Great, so the filter is the thing that determines the sharing. Excellent, thanks!

I created two scrum boards using the same filter. I then created a sprint in one of them but it doesn't show up in the other. What am I missing?

Absolutely, a board discovers which sprints exist by looking for all the issues that match the board's filter then looking at the sprint field. If board A includes issues that are in a sprint also shown on a board B then the sprint will be shown on both A and B.

The only exception to this is 'future sprints', these are just points in the backlog at the moment (they don't actually own any issues or change the sprint field). We'd like to change this in the future.

Is there a JIRA in the Atlassian JIRA for changing the following?

"The only exception to this is 'future sprints', these are just points in the backlog at the moment (they don't actually own any issues or change the sprint field). We'd like to change this in the future."

Does this mean sprints created on one board that aren't currently active won't show up on another board with the same filter? This is what I need - so I can have one board that shows everything (active and future sprints) for the project, and then boards for each individual scrum that show only their active and future sprints.

If you working on the same backlog, it seems to be possible with parallel sprints in GH 6.0.3:

* https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/GH/GreenHopper+6.0.3+Release+Notes#GreenHopper6.0.3ReleaseNotes-Parallelsprints

However, it still undergo development and may be further change or tweak in future release. You need to enable it in greenhopper labs to start testing it:

  • Administration > Plugins > Greenhopper > Greenhopper labs

That's not quite what I'm looking for. I want people to work on the same sprints, on different boards. The parallel sprints feature seems to allow different sprints on the same board.

Is it possible to see items (i.e., user stories, issues, etc.) from multiple projects in the same sprint? 

Thanks.
