One project; multiple teams, running parallel sprint


How can we ahve Multiple or Parallel Sprints running at the same time.

I saw some where, we can do the settings change in JIRA Administration >> Applications >> JIRA Software >> JIRA Software Labs and then mark the checkbox named Parallel Sprints,

But being a JIRA admin, i couldn't find the "Applications" option, Can some one help me for this.

Nagaraju, Not sure what version of JIRA you are using but on 7.3.x + you will need to look here:

1. Click on the little gear drop-down (upper right-hand corner)

2. Select Applications

3. On the left side under JIRA Software select JIRA software configuration.

4. there will be a checkbox to check.

After this all you need to do is create you sprints and start as many as needed.

Good luck!


Thanks Pete for the response...But ours is JIRA v6.3. How can we do this in 6.3?
