Create sprints in company-managed projects

You can create a sprint for your current iteration, or multiple future sprints if you want to plan several iterations ahead.

Most sprint actions require the Manage Sprints project permission. However, some sprint actions like adding issues to sprints, removing issues from sprints also require the Schedule Issues and Edit Issues project permissions. Learn more about permissions in Jira.

To create a sprint:

  1. If not already there, navigate to your company-managed software project.

  2. From your project’s sidebar, select Backlog.

  3. Scroll down past any currently existing sprints to the section titled Backlog. On the far right of this section, find and select the Create sprint button.

Once you have created a sprint, you can add issues to it to start planning your team’s future work.
