Occasionally one of our users will assign a story to another projects sprint. When this occurs it assigns the original stories sprint to the project whose sprint was selected. So if a story in project A is inadvertently assigned to project B, project A's active sprint appears in project B backlog as an active sprint.
We are running dozens of projects. When assigning a story to a sprint the sprint drop-down currently presents all project sprints. Is there a Jira configuration setting that will only allow the selected projects sprints to appear vs all project sprints?
No, sprints are not project specific. As of Jira Server 8.11 you can restrict what is being shown in the sprint field, see JSWSERVER-10805, and there is a request to have it implemented in Jira Cloud as well, JSWCLOUD-10805.
The way we work around it is to only use the board to assign sprints, that way you will not end up in a situation were the user select the wrong sprint (as long as the board is only looking at one project). At my previous job they worked around it by making the sprint name specific to the project by adding the project key in the sprint name.
Trying to understand the problem. The story point estimation is done for a specific story, SCRUM board not projects is configured to display those stories with total story points in a specific sprint.
So I think it is all about how to configure the board. If you want on one board to display only issues of a specific project then configure the filter associated with that board.
Let me know if I didn't understand your problem correctly.
