Hi Vasilis

what you're showing is the backlog - you can't close a sprint from the backlog. You need to go to the active sprint view, then have the sprint showing that you want to close. There should be a Close Sprint button on the top right

I closed one sprint out of three that I am running. But I am not able to close the other two sprints I was having along with the one I marked as completed.


I am neither able to view the option to close sprint for the other two sprints.

I have the same problem. I'm running two sprints concurrently. When I go to the active sprint board, the option to close a sprint is grey'd out. There's also not an option to select which sprint to view in order to close one instead of the other.

Hi @Brian_Longstreet 

Below are 2 screenshots, the first where all sprints are showing and a greyed out button, then just one sprint selected. Do you not have that dropdown to select sprints? Could you let us have a screenshot from your project?

Yes the sprint button is greyed out. However, your screenshot was exactly what I needed. I did not notice the option to select a sprint. Once I selected the sprint, the Complete button became available. 

Thank you for your help!

HI Warren,

I am facing the same issue but unable to see the options that are screenshotted by you.

I am the admin on the JIRA instance, can you suggest solution

If you go to the active sprint board, look in the top right corner of the board, you should see a grey drop down that shows either one of your sprints or 'all sprints'. Change this drop down to select the sprint you're interested in, and then you'll be able to complete that sprint.
