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'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.
I had an active sprint for which i needed to extend the end date as i had set the end date to a shorter period by mistake. After i changed the end date the board started showing zero days remaining in the sprint although the end date was more than 2 weeks from now.
