The values are set by the users putting things into the sprints they've defined.  There's an association between sprint and issue defined in the Agile active objects tables.

Thanks for the reply.

Can these values be controlled programmatically in such a fashion that Project P containing 2 Agile Boards A and B. And the program allow edit Issue's sprint field to show only Agile Board A's sprint values and not Agile Board B's sprint values. 

No, because if you're doing this, it's in both sprints and hence needs to show both.

A little modification in my previous question: Programmatically allowing edit issue screen belonging to Agile Board A to show Sprint values of Agile Board A only and Agile Board B's edit issue screen to show Sprint values of Agile Board B only!!

No, because the boards need to show what you have done with the issue. If you want to break them in this way, you'll need to rewrite half of the Agile addon.

But what in case the issue belongs to Agile Board A's sprint only and not to Agile Board B. Asking this because it causes confusion while changing sprint value in edit issue screen wherein all the sprint values belonging to Project are shown and are not just specific Agile board to whom issue belongs to.
