Is it possible to rename a closed sprint in JIRA Cloud?

Some of our naming standards have changed, and some sprints were named incorrectly in the past so we would like to clean up and change the names for completed sprints. Is there a way to do this with JIRA Cloud (Agile/Scrum)?

Also, we recently split one of our applications into two, and we would like to move all related stories for the second part of the application to a new JIRA project. Is it possible to move the stories while retaining sprint stats and reporting inside the new project?

Hello Paul,

Thank you for reaching out to Community!

When using a classic or a next-gen Software project, currently, there is no option to rename a closed sprint. 

We have a feature request suggesting the implementation of this ability:

Please, click on vote and watch to receive updates about the features.

Regarding your second question, I tested here and when moving a ticket from a sprint to another project, it will keep the sprint name on the Sprint field and it’s possible to filter the sprint on the reports on the new project.


Thanks for the quick response, Angélica. I will subscribe to updates on the new feature request as you suggested.

Go to the 'Report' Tab and select the 'Sprint Report' in the dropdown.

Select your Sprint from the dropdown. Click 'Edit Sprint' and rename it.
