Stories/Effort Added After Sprint Started Not in Sprint Report

Our team is using JIRA to track our sprint work. Currently we are experiencing the following issue. If a story is added after the sprint was started, or effort increases in a story that’s in a current sprint, the additional points are not being considered in the sprint report and is incorrectly stating the team’s velocity.

Is there anything we can do about this?

Hi Robert,

We observed this issue too and we haven't found a way to force the JIRA Agile Velocity Report to acknowledge story point changes after the sprint is started. It's deceiving because the point field on a story can be edited even after the story is in an active sprint.

We are now extremely cautious in making sure all stories have the correct point value when starting the sprint (or in the case of pulling in a story to an active sprint, we make sure it contains the appropriate point value before adding it to an active sprint).

In the event of a story becoming larger after the sprint starts, my teams don't adjust the point value. Instead, we discuss it in the retrospective to determine what caused us to under-estimate the story.

Hi Preston, Robert,

You may also be interested in voting and watching GHS-8776 which incorporates a change in behaviour to better capture a change in the sprint commitment.

GHS-8776 - As a Scrum Master, I want the story points completed to also include added in user stories that were completed in the Sprint and Velocity Reports and not just committed user story points.

Thanks, have a super 2014!

Any solutions for this yet? I see this post is from 2013 and we are now in 2019.

Hi @Sminu Joseph ,

According to below bug ticket this issue should have been solved back in 2015:


If you still experience a similar behavior it may be a good idea to either create a new thread or open a support request with Atlassian Support by using the below link:
