I have having a difficult time with JIRA -- it will not let me have more than one Sprint for a Project, even though I have multiple boards (teams) -- How can I make this work -- as I all of the teams work is 'blobbed'together now and metrics and reporting will be impossible!
Is this possible?
So far, not very impressed with Jira .... so please if someone can help me understand the madness -- spreadsheets were so much simpler - even stickies!
Sprints do not belong to projects, they are associated with boards.
If you have three boards looking at the same project, this will work fine, *but* you'll want to set up the boards so that they only look at the issues related to the team.
Once you've got the hang of that, then you might want to look into enabling multiple active sprints.
oh man, this is not fun -- how do i filter out the stories then -- and where is that defined?
All I want to do is have a backlog with 10 stories -- and team 1 works story A; team 2 story B etc. --
But on every board, it will not let me create a new sprint -- until the current sprint is over
Could this be my version of JIRA that will not let me have more than 1 sprint on a project?

No. You're missing the point of Scrum.
With a Scrum, you have a backlog of things that need doing. You break up your work into sprints (blocks of time)
To start a sprint, you commit to doing a set of things in the backlog, and then start the sprint. You do not run more than one sprint off that backlog.
That's the basics, and of course, most people have variations.
There are two ways to have a single backlog and multiple sprints:
1. Have boards that completely exclude issues that are on other boards
2. Enable parallel sprints
(p.s. Yes, the spam filters can be quite aggressive, it's not your English, it's their settings)
No. You mean board. Projects do not have a backlog.
If you create a Scrum board that includes all the issues, you will find that the sprints clash, because you've got a board including more than one sprint.
Either don't do that, or enable parallel sprints (see https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirasoftwarecloud/using-parallel-sprints-797737030.html )
I'm glad I got you to a solution.
Looking back over the conversation, I was struggling to explain myself (I'm going to try to partially blame a long busy day), and I really think I wasn't translating my "how JIRA thinks" into "how it applies to Scrum" well at all.
I should have realised that you get Agile a lot earlier and then emphasised the "parallel sprint" thing better.
I can't accept thanks for the patience - you were the one with the patience, having to explain more and more until I grasped it all!
