It sounds like you want to be able to have multiple active sprints (i.e. one for each team) on the same board. If this is what you want, you will need to enable parallel sprints. Instructions on how to do that can be found here:

Below are three steps from that article:

  1. Log in as a user with the Administer Jira global permission.

  2. From the global navigation, select Settings () > Products.

  3. Under Jira configuration, select the toggle for Parallel sprints.

Hello @PrathibaVellaikkal 

Welcome to the Atlassian community.

What functionality are you hoping to get by "managing" multiple scrum teams in a single board?

You could do the following:

Create a filter that will find all the issues that will be within scope for these multiple teams.

Create a Scrum board based on that all-encompassing filter.

The Scrum board will then show all the Sprints where any of the issues within the filter scope have been assigned.

Do you plan to have the teams create sprints within their own boards? Or do you plan to create the sprints from this all-encompassing board? If the sprints are created in the team-specific boards then they will not show up in the all-encompassing board until an issue is added to the sprint. Sprints will show in any board where:

1. The sprint was created, or

2. The board includes issues that are assigned to the sprint.

So, empty sprints show only in the board where they were created.


Does that address your need?
