Is there a way to see completed sprints on the User Story Map?

In the screenshots and demo videos, it seemed like all applicable sprints will show up on the story map if there are stories in those sprints with matching Epics.

On my story map I only see the current active sprint and Unscheduled swimlanes only when I select the Sprint Swimlanes view.

What other setting/config is needed to see completed sprints and corresponding jira items?

We need a complete story map to understand:

  • What we have done
  • What we are doing
  • What we are going to do

(see Creating an Agile Roadmap using Story mapping - Andrea Gigante)

UPDATE: Nick Muldoon / Easy Agile updated the link above as per Andrea's request below

Thanks for using my original article as source of information/reference, I really appreciate, but I would simply like to inform you that Scrum Alliance removed the original article and I had to re-publish it in LinkedIn.
I would appreciate if you could update the reference to the new url:

Thanks again

Hi Balki,

Today we only show active and future sprints on the story map.

Completed sprints are not shown, even when the 'Done' Status Category is selected, as many teams have hundreds or even thousands of issues in completed sprints and they don't want all of that noise. It also causes a performance issue if we request thousands of issues from JIRA.

We do have a story on the backlog to show a few of the more recent sprints, say the past 3. Would that be useful?

Thanks Balki,

Thanks Nick.  We intentionally keep our projects to <12 sprints.  And want to use your product to bring visibility for the entire project.  So, our ideal is to see all sprints.  Maybe show 3-5 by default but be to configure a higher # for others like us?

Thanks Balki, noted on the story. I'll follow up here and let you know when we explore this.

Have a great week,

Hi Nick,

We also need to see all sprints to get the whole picture.

Do you have a solution, yet?

Best regards,

Thanks @Alex.

Keen to know - how many past sprints are you keen to see?


It would be very useful for us too. Any ideas?


Thank you

Hi @Rodrigo Bertet Ramos,

Understood. It is on the backlog to find a compelling solution for this. Nothing to share at this stage though.
