Tickets removed from sprint not appearing in list of issues removed


When we remove tickets from a sprint, these are not appearing in the "Issues Removed from Sprint" list unless some time has been logged to these tickets during the sprint (have tested this). Instead, the Remaining time at sprint start is being changed. My questions are:

  1. Is this the expected behaviour?
  2. Is there a way to either change this so that the issue remaining time shows up on the burndown rather than the remaining time at sprint start? 
  3. If the answer to (2) is no, is there an alternative way to list ALL of the issues that were removed from the sprint while that sprint is open?

Many thanks,

Your Agile board and the reporting of that board are tied to your filter.   if removing issues from the Sprint causes the issues to be removed from the filter results, they will not appear in the reports. 


If you are talking about Rolling Stories over from one sprint to the next, leave the issues in the sprint, when the sprint closes, these issues will be rolled over to the next sprint.   if you look at the sprint field, you will notice that the issue has the previous sprints listed.  If you remove issues from the sprint, the logged time and other attributes are not carried over when you close the sprint.
