How to you edit values for the Sprint field?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Defining status field values

I want to know how to edit and manage values for the Sprint field. There are values created by a previous administrator. But we stopped using the Sprint field years ago, and now want to re-start using it. So we need to re-set or re-establish values for our sprints.

You can't delete sprints unless you remove all the historical data from old issues. And even then they might still show up under Rapidboard Reports. Sprints are added, completed, reopened, and deleted by individual Scrum Boards. The Sprint field is not centrally managed.

With that in mind, can you show us a screenshot of the problem and explain what you would like to do?

When I click on edit on the Sprint field, the following displays:


Sorry I can't find the exact reference: your documentation is confusing in it's layout.
