Starting a sprint throws a warning message


I am trying to start a sprint and getting the error/warning below.

Any ideas why?

How to resolve?

You will not be able to complete this sprint, as it includes sub-tasks that cannot be transitioned to the "Done" column.


JIRA v7.0.4

Your workflow for sub-tasks is incorrect, OR your column mappings are incorrect.

Have a look at the board config first - what status are in the "done" column?

Now look at the workflow for each type of sub-task in the project - at least one of them will not have any status that you noted were in the "done" column.

Cheers Mate!

For some reason board creation failed.

So actually I did not have a board for this project to support the sprint :|

I re-created the board and voila... things are working again.
