Change the word "sprint" to something else

My organization does not use the word "sprint" (we use "iteration" instead). Is it possible to change the Scrum board so that it doesn't use "sprint"?

I submitted this as an official support question to Atlassian, and the answer was basically, no, there's no way to do that. Here's the text of the answer:

Hi Aaron,

There is no way to change this label through the interface. I also tried the InProduct Translation but with no luck.

Maybe this can be achieved by some changes in the code, but since customisations are out of scope of this support channel, I'd advise you to ask it in a more specific way at which is our community network where anyone can help you, and even our developers participate there.
Or, if this is an urgent matter, I can refer you to one of our Experts, that can make almost any customisations to JIRA.

Thanks for your understanding. Please let us know if is there anything else we can do for you.

Best regards,
Andre Petry

Not via configuration. The only way to change is to properties file in the plugin.

Can you elaborate on this? I can't find any information about a Greenhopper properties file.

Open up the GreenHopper jar and look for the right properties file that holds the translation value.

You need to change all mentions of sprint into iteration in the BoardAction*.properties files.

Be sure to only change the values and not the keys.

For example : are no boards which contain this sprint.

is changed to are no boards which contain this iteration.

Mmmm, I would expect the terminology to be as stable as Saturn's rings:

I'd upvote this as a feature request. I hate the word "sprint."

Friday Fun: What's your favourite beer/drink

As a Belgian, beer-lover and home brewer, beer is one of my great passions. I love the fact that with just a few ingredients (usually just water, hop and malt) you can create so many different tastes...
