Is it possible to have two active sprints in one project?

Within a project with multiple teams, is is possible to have more than one active sprint? I have set up a separate Rapid board for each team, but the active sprints are currently linked (even though they are different boards, with different issues, different filters, etc). Ending sprint on one board ends the sprint on the second board.

Have switched on "Parallel Sprints" in GH labs. Solves the problems.

Hi Ted,

Some of the issues must be the same across the two boards. You can test this by just going to the issue navigator and using JQL like "project = x and sprint in openSprints()" then checking the Sprint field.

The board knows about sprints only because it selects the issues that match the filter then looks at the sprint field for those issues.

Hi Shaun,

I checked that before posting. I created two boards, each with one distinct issue. Starting a sprint on one board starts in on the second board.

Hi Ted,

Like I said, please send us a dump of the issue navigator output. The problem must be there somewhere because that's how boards find sprints.

Still implies that you have issues on the separate boards that overlap. I would still suggest you work out what the overlap is.
