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.

Please get this on the roadmap and released! This makes it very difficult if I cannot update the sprint. 

In JIRA Server - To rename a Completed Sprint :

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.

there is no option for closed sprints.

What is this provided before only to be stripped out in the JIRA CLOUD Version, we should have this ability, I consider this a bug as the original version had this ability.  We needed to grandfather in sprints from an excel sheet and because you cannot edit the close date, it caused the JIRA Advance Roadmap to look like a parking lot of lost rows.  If nothing else, please provide administrators the ability to edit.

+1 to David Woo, recommendation from December 2020 no longer works

What Angie said can be easily seen as a BUG in JIRA Advance Roadmap, without the ability rename and change the dates for the Sprint will result in this ugly image.  I have LOST 4 rows of restate space because I was working on grandfather-ing past Sprints managed by Excel into JIRA.  And because we cannot rename nor change the date like we used to, this what it looks like.

Im facing the same issue in JIRA Advance Roadmap, is there any news on a fix for this?
