How do I change the name of the sprint?

With the new Greenhopper and these boards, it is using a new Sprint field. It allows me to change the name of the Sprint but only the display name.

When I create an issue, and I type in the textbook the name of the Sprint I had created, it does not work. I finally figured out that it was tha value 3. Why is it 3? We did 3 other releases, so the only thing I can think is that it started from 0 and that is why it is naming this sprint 3.

If this is the case though, how can I change the name of the Sprint so that I know exactly what it is when I want to type it in the Text field box on creating an issue?

Greenhopper gives you an option to provide a name for a sprint (say, e.g. "Sprint for CW 35"). This, however is just some sort of lable for the sprint, the mapping of issues an sprints is done by the field "SprintID" (or similar, not entirely sure). AFAIK this field can not be changed (might be of type "number field, not sure) and needs to be used as it is.

While I never tried to add issues to sprint by modifying that field in theary it should work. But you will have to know and provide the ID (i.e. number) of the current sprint. Other than that you cold just add the issue to the sprint by drag-and-drop in the Greenhopper Plan mode, which resembles your Product backlog.

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...
