Manage Sprints permission - Question



I am getting this message when I try to close sprint. 

You need the Manage Sprints permission for all projects in the origin board to manage this sprint.


I have Sprint manager and lead roles in the project.

Permission scheme that this project uses is shared by many projects and I am not lead for other projects.


Can you please let me know how to resolve this issue.

Using Jira 7.1

Hi Kumar,

This situation looks to be similar to the following KB:

There are a few reasons why this could happen though:

- You may not have *Manage Sprint* permissions for all projects in the Board filter.

- The Board Filter may have something in the JQL query it uses preventing you from closing the sprint.

Here is a similar community post that provides some additional insight as well:
