I was testing jira import functionality on a project B by taking export of certain issues of project A. Now problem is that both project issues are same and have become interrelated.

Even the release details have been copied and in case I try to delete the issues from Project B. I see that they also get deleted from Project A which is a live project.

So how to separate out the Sprint details, release details of issues from both projects.

This does not sound like the way JIRA behaves at all.

Could you clarify something - when you say "project", do you actually mean "board"?

By Project I mean "Project" named "A" and "B" and the issues can be seen in both the project boards and on clicking left nav backlog  also. In that view issues are coming based on the Sprints listed in Project A.

Your boards are set to include issues from both projects.  You need to change those.

I mean the project A export file was having field "projectname" which I changed from project A to project B. Now, I imported that file to project B. I guess since the import was carried out  with csv having Sprint field and release field as well. So, it created similar fields for project B also. Further, I guess since the release and sprint were having same sprint id and version id. Therefore, the issues are interlinked in both the projects. Thus, in case I delete a sprint X for Project B which got imported from project A. The sprint X of Project A also gets deleted.

I hope you understand my problem now.

I don't understand what you've done, why, or what you're trying to achieve by doing it.

Some things jumped out as clear though:

  • Changing the project name in an export file is likely to break things unless you change the associated things.
  • "issues are interlinked" explains nothing about what you mean - links?  Same issues?  What?
  • Yes, if you delete a sprint, you delete it.  Sprints do NOT belong to projects, they belong to boards
