How to extend duration of started sprint?

Sprint was started with short duration by mistake. There are already closed tasks and logged hours.

Could you please help me to determine a correct way for increasing spint's duartion?

I just figured out how to do this for JIRA v6.4.7 1) From left hand nav panel, select "backlog" 2) Find name of active sprint. 3) Ensure sprint info is maximized with V icon rather than > icon. 4) Hover on end of sprint date. 5) Observe that display turns into edit field. But yes, not that obvious.

I followed this instruction today. It works. Thank you!

Is there a way pre JIRA v6.4.7?  This doesn't seem to work on v6.4.3

Thanks! Would love if they added a more obvious way to accomplish this, ideally without having to leave the active sprint

Thanks for the hint, it has saved my day.

And for atlassian guys: it's hard to find proper words (without using dirty and insulting language) to describe my imressions on such ridicuosly poor UX solutions.

I'm not quite sure, if it is what you are looking for, but if you go to agile you can change the sprint on the work tab by clicking on the little triangle next to the sprints name. If you click on the second date on the opened window, you should be able to change to end date of the sprint.

The same thing also works for the plan tab, just click on the second date, and you can adjust it.

Note: To be able to change the dates of a sprint you need to meet the required permissions. Personaly, i'm not sure which they are, but I would guess project administrator role should be enough.

Wondering where this functionality went in the latest version of JIRA. I can't seem to find it, but I'm sure it's something that wouldn't have been removed.

Thanks Elio - I figured it out a bit after posting the question here. But I appreciate you posting the instructions here.
