I'm pretty new to JIRA and am using Agile. I'm getting a confusing range of options available when I try to add an issue to an epic. In the image shown below, there three 'Sprint 1' options, along with Sprint 2 and 4 showing as active. There are only 2 sprints in this project so it doesn't make sense to me. Is this a bug, or am I misunderstanding something.

Please take a look on the the board filter used. If it's using multiple projects on that filter, it will display all sprints belonging to those projects accordignly. To have this resolved, limit the board filter to use just one single project.
I am just getting started with agile in Jira, and I have an active sprint (Sprint 1) and future Sprints (2,3, etc.)
When creating new JIRA items, I found I could assign them to Sprint 1 (active), Sprint 1 (future), Sprint 2 (future), Sprint 3 (future)..... don't know why it has a "future" version of Sprint 1, and its annoying/distracting to have in the list.
As a workaround, I assigned a task to it, then when to the my board where it showed a new Sprint 1 that wasn't started, below the tasks already in the Sprint 1 which was active. I moved the task from the "not started" Sprint 1 to the "active" Sprint 1, which left me with an empty Sprint 1 (not started) on my board. I deleted the Sprint using the board functionality, and now when I add a new task, I am no longer presented with Sprint 1 (future), just the active Sprint 1. Yay!
Don't know why I need to do this, but it seems to work. Maybe Sprint 1 (future) is designed for things you are thinking of adding the current active sprint but haven't committed to doing so yet. Don't know. But this is the only way I could find to delete if you its unneeded and distracting.
