Can there be any restrictions on starting/completing a sprint in JIRA Agile?


Is it possible to have restrictions on starting or completing a sprint except for the permissions?

Example:  (1) A sprint can't be started if at least 1 specific issue type is also part of the sprint 

                  (2)  A Sprint can't be completed if at least 1 specific issue type has been completed

Maybe you can refer me to any plugins?

Your question refer to a demande that as been made in the past. (feel free to vote and watch this issue)

There is no way to put condition to a sprint yet. The only thing you can do is to restric the ''administer project'' permission, for that is the permission that can start and stop a sprint.


Have a good one! 

Hi Philippe Thanks! Voted and started watching it :-) Regards, Juan
