How do I set the duration of a sprint?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Tracking your progress

Is it possible to set the duration of a sprint in JIRA software? I am working with 15-day sprints, but cannot find the option to customize the duration.

Hi Eduardo,
this feature is available since JIRA 6.7, read more about it in the release notes:

Just search for "Default sprint durations for new sprints".

If your JIRA version is older this is not possible.


Problem solved. Thanks for the help!

Hi Eduardo,
if either Michael or my contribution led to your solution it would be great, if you could accept our answers smile
