I have moved 2 stories out of the sprint to the backlog and the sprint status on those stories as well as the tasks shows as Hold Backlog (as it should). But still when I try to close the sprint it shows pending subtasks on the same 2 stories which are not even in the sprint, so cannot close the sprint.
Not sure what the issue here is - please advise.
@Shahbaz Khan , if you inspect the subtest that are seemingly holding the sprint closure up what status are they in? I might suggest clearing the sprint from the Sprint field on all issues if in fact the stories and subtasks are clearly no longer in the sprint.
Sounds like you're running into https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JSWCLOUD-9512 .
The workarounds mentioned in that bug tickets are;
I moved those 2 stories to the current sprint and closed the sprint by moving those open issues to next sprint, and then manually moved those 2 stories to On Hold backlog.
I understand it is a nasty workaround but somehow I got what i needed for now
