Somehow every new sprint, we have existing CLOSED tickets that get transferred to the new Sprint.
It is happening, when someone is closing old Sprint and opening new Sprint.
Have a look at one of these "closed" issues. Were they in the far right hand column of the board when the sprint was closed (look at the status at the time of closing and the board column mapping). Also, did they have one or more sub-tasks? If they do have sub-tasks, check the same for the sub-tasks - were they in the far-right hand column too?
Statuses "Closed" and "Resolved" are Unmapped in Board. Column "Done" contain tickets only with status "Ready for Release". Tickets had been closed before Sprint has been closed. Such tickets have sub-tasks and/or linked issues which are not "Closed" but "Ready for Release"/"Opened". Also i have found tasks which are in progress and moved to new sprint, those tasks contain sub-tasks in "Opened" and "Ready for Release" states, all those sub-tasks also automatically moved to new Sprint.
Right, that makes sense.
For an issue to be seen as closed by a sprint, it has to be in the right-hand column of a board.
Your closed and resolved issues, and the ones that have sub-tasks that are not done, are moved to the new sprint because you've told JIRA they are not done.
I actually have the exact same problem, BUT my board has the a done column with all the closed and resolved tickets mapped correctly. Basically the sprint closed, a new sprint was started and over 200 tickets that were closed from months ago (several sprints past) somehow were added to the new sprint automatically. I checked the history in the individual tickets and none of them have an action listed that put them in the new sprint. And the board filter hasn't changed and there's nothing in the audit log to explain how it happened. Very concerning that we have to manually update each individual ticket since bulk update doesn't allow us to remove one value from a series of sprint values per ticket :(
