Jira sprint history is the key to monitoring your team activities. If you know how you did in the previous sprint, you have more chances to improve your current performance. Analyzing your past activities is possible with some Jira tools you will find in this article.

Sprint history in Jira helps you to:

  • Review the scope of work
  • See the milestones your team faced
  • Check how the team divided up the tasks
  • Find out what updates each team member has made
  • Get performance records for a regulatory audit

How do I see previous Sprint issues in Jira?

🔹 For very basic information, you can try the Advanced issue search. Here you add the sprint you want to find and additional filters if you need them. Or you can type JQL: sprint = ”SprintName”.

Result: You will get brief details about the issue scope for the sprint, issue statuses, assignees created/updated/resolution date, etc. 

🔹 Another way to see the previous Sprint issues is to open the Sprint Burndown chart or Sprint report in the Report section. Here you can choose up to 10 previous sprints to check your team's performance.

  • Chart with the work scope and how you managed to complete it during the sprint. Each point shows changes to the issue: for example, when the issue was added to sprint, when the estimate was updated, transition to done.
  • Under the chart, you can also find the list with scope change logs, completed and uncompleted issues.
