Can tickets be moved to another active Sprint B during closing an active Sprint A?

I am trying to complete an active Sprint and move the incomplete tickets to another Sprint that has been already activated.

When I tried to complete an active Sprint, the active Sprint is not listed in the drop down selection of the Sprint to move the tickets to.

Is this a bug or by designed that tickets only can be moved to a Sprint that is not active yet (i.e Planned Sprint) ?


Thank you for your help.

Hi @Kent Chiu - This is explained in the Jira Software Cloud documentation, so probably isn't a bug:

When completing an active sprint with incomplete issues, you can't directly move these incomplete issues to another active sprint. You need to move these issues to the backlog first, and then you can add the issues to the active sprint.

Hope that helps!

Is there a justification for why this wouldn't be allowed? It would be helpful to understand what the harm is in making this action possible.
