How To Remove Completed Sprint In Jira Ticket

When utilizing Jira for project management, sprints are utilized to monitor the tasks that need to be completed within a specific time period. If it becomes necessary, a completed sprint may need to be removed from a ticket for various reasons. In this blog post, we will provide step-by-step instructions on how to remove a finished sprint from a Jira ticket.

Note: Before you proceed, ensure that you have the necessary permissions to modify sprints. If you don’t, reach out to your Jira administrator.

Step 1: Navigate to the Ticket

Firstly, locate the ticket from which you want to remove the completed sprint. You can either search for the ticket directly using its ticket number or navigate to it from the relevant project or sprint dashboard.

Step 2: Edit the Ticket

Once you’ve located the ticket, click on it to open the ticket detail view. Then click on the ‘Edit’ button, typically located near the top right of the ticket.

Step 3: Remove the Sprint Information

In the ‘Edit’ view, find the ‘Sprint’ field. This field contains the names of the sprints associated with the ticket. Remove the name of the sprint you want to delete from this field.

It is important to note that you should be careful while performing this step. Removing the incorrect sprint could lead to confusion and potential problems with your project management.

Step 4: Save Your Changes

After removing the sprint name, click on the ‘Save’ button to save your changes. The ticket will no longer be associated with the removed sprint.


And that’s it! You have successfully removed a completed sprint from a Jira ticket. This process is simple and straightforward, but if you encounter any issues or have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to your Jira administrator or consult the Atlassian community for assistance.
