I know this issue is partially existing in other questions relating to tickets in other sprints displaying on boards but my concern is specific to the creation of a ticket.
When you create a ticket in project A, the sprint drop down field displays all available sprints from Project A, Project B, Project C etc.
Creating a ticket for a project should only be able to be added to a sprint in that project.
UPDATE - Vote for this functionality here: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JSWSERVER-10805
Currently, there does not seem to be anything that limits which Sprint an issue can be added into when done via the Issue View Screen (with the 'Sprint' field). This can cause confusion as it could show Sprints from boards from a different project or cause users to link the issue to the wrong Sprint due to Sprints having the same name.
The suggested workaround is as follows:
Since Sprint names are not unique in JIRA, try using unique Sprint names with a prefix of the Project so that it will be easier to distinguish them.
At this time I would recommend going to JSWSERVER-10805, voting on the issue and leaving comments for the developers so that feature request can gain additional impact so it can be added to JIRA.
Thanks. Have updated the original question to direct others to the issue. I can see the issue was created in 2014 and hasn't been done yet.
Since 2014, Aaron Mooy has:
That's a lot of progress so I am a little concerned at the comparitive lack of progress of this issue.
