      Problem Definition

      Currently, there does not seem to be anything that limits which Sprint an issue can be added into when done via the Issue View/Create/Edit Screens (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.

      Suggested Solution

      Have a feature where JIRA will warn users that the issue(s) is being added into a Sprint that was created in a Board from different a project - validate this with the Board JQL too.


      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.
