Can I simultaneously have different length sprints in the same JIRA project?

Or do they need to match for all Scrums/Teams? The last related answer is 2 years old (

We are running 6.3.6 but upgrading this spring to current/JIRA Software. Thanks!

We are running JIRA 6.4.11 and sometimes have had sprints of different lengths because a team done goofed and closed a sprint too early (and you can't reopen it, not in our version at least )o:

If you need to calculate department metrics over teams, coordinate builds at the end of sprints and/or have team members helping out other teams, you may run into issues (we did), but nothing in JIRA itself prevents it that I can think of.

Don't think I would recommend it in a single project, however.

Just my $0.02 worth
