Hello @Kathleen Veach , and welcome to the Community!

It sounds like you'll want to use the Advanced Issue Search/JQL to find those issues.

In Jira, go to the Issues dropdown in the navigation bar, then select "Advanced Issue Search", then type out your query. You can start by typing "Sprint = XXXX" in the JQL view:
