How To See Old Sprints In Jira

The Agile methodology has become a cornerstone in modern software development, and Jira is one of the platforms that have made the implementation of Agile practices possible and efficient. One of the key aspects of Agile in Jira is the use of ‘sprints’. Sprints are periods during which specific work has to be completed and ready for review. But what if you need to access and see your old sprints in Jira?

Don’t worry! In this blog post, we will guide you on how to view your old sprints in Jira.

Why should you view old sprints in Jira?

Looking at old Sprints can provide a wealth of useful information. By reviewing your past work, you can track development over time, identify patterns, and gain insights that will help you plan your future projects more effectively.

Steps to view old sprints in Jira:

Step 1: Access Jira Software

To start with, you need to access your Jira Software. Log in to your Jira account.

Step 2: Accessing the desired project

Once you are logged in, navigate to the desired project whose old sprints you want to see.

Step 3: Navigate to the ‘Active sprints’ or ‘Backlog’

In your project, click either ‘Active sprints’ or ‘Backlog’ (located on the left-hand side menu). The choice here depends on whether your sprint is closed or not.

Step 4: Accessing the sprint report

On the right-hand side of the screen, you will see a drop-down menu named ‘Reports’. Click on it and then select ‘Sprint Report’ from the list.

Step 5: Selecting the desired sprint

On the Sprint Report screen, you will see another drop-down menu labelled ‘Sprint’. Here, you can select the sprint that you want to view. All your old sprints should be listed here.

And that’s it! You should now be able to see all the details of your old sprint, including the completed issues, incomplete issues, and more.


Accessing old sprints in Jira is straightforward once you know where to look. By regularly reviewing your old sprints, you can gain valuable insights into your project progress over time, understand what worked and what didn’t, and use these learnings to improve your future sprints and ultimately, your whole project.
