How do I unlink the sprint label across multiple projects

I have two projects that have an active sprint with the same identifier number. Now when i change the label for one sprint in one project, it changes the label for a sprint in another project. How can I change the name of one of the sprints and not have it affect another sprint?

Hi Zan, 

Here is the issue I filed, but it was set to resolved as it is known behavior:

I think I will have to re-submit it as an improvement request.


Hi @john kaplan] and [~elisa diel [atlassian] I agree with John, this shouldn't be marked as resolved. I've posted a comment on the issue referenced as well.

This causes big problems for us... Most groups only have access to their project, and they create names like "Sprint 1" and so they step all over each other and then complain when they don't have access to close the sprint. It creates a huge support/administrative mess.

Hi John,

We might have to change it directly on the database. Could you please raise a ticket on Atlassian SAC ( under JIRA Cloud so we can better investigate it? smile

Thank You!

I have the same problem - I have two projects but since running sprints in each the numbering has gone out of sync when I try searching in filters.

@John Kaplan do you have the issue number you raised?
