Represent the active sprint as a Gantt chart

Is there a way to convert the active sprint board to a Gantt chart?
If not, so how can I create a Gantt chart for the current sprint?

Maybe you should look at Advanced Roadmaps. I don’t understand the concept of a sprint represented by a Gantt chart.

Indeed, I don't think there's much point in representing a sprint in a Gantt - there's rarely any chaining of tasks, people are not allocated to do things in any order, individually, or length of time, and most sprints are measured in story points which don't translate to time anyway.

You'd end up with a gantt that looks simply like a list of issues, each with a bar starting at the beginning of the sprint, and being of a length proportional to the sprint estimate, which probably wouldn't tell you anything at all.

I'm afraid this will be one of those rare occasions where I must disagree with @Nic Brough -Adaptavist-.  :) 

Representing Sprints in a Gantt chart was one of the most frequently requested features when ALM Works launched Structure.Gantt. Why?  Because many Jira projects are intimately tied to other Jira projects — i.e., they have interdependencies across simultaneous or sequential sprints.

And if you are one of the lucky program or portfolio management folks you are trying to assess the big picture, across Jira projects - as shown here.

I suspect @Ahmed Maher has such a use case.

Oh, I'm not saying that Gantt charts are not useful at all, just that they're of no use for a single sprint - a sprint simply doesn't look at the timing or dependencies that Gantt charts can be a useful representation of.

I think I was unclear when I said "representing a sprint in a Gantt" - I really did mean "generating a Gantt chart based on the handful of issues in the current sprint".  Not "having a Gantt chart that displays sprints and their content across a wider view".

Yes, that was the case @Dave Rosenlund _Tempo_ , many thanks to you!

Thank you all for your suppor. And sorry for my late response!

There is a continuing discussion about whether the Gantt charts belong to the agile world. Undoubtedly, even if the chart is just regularly, rather than continuously updated, it helps provide insight into project progress to higher management. In the article, you can find more insight on Gantt Charts in Agile Management.

I agree with @Jack Brickey what the Gantt chart has to do with sprinting. Confusing ideas about two methodologies. It's true that this is often asked, it happens to me too and I patiently explain the difference and teach how to use the two methodologies well. Try it out for yourselves @Ahmed Maher
