A large , enterprise level Programme which has many teams and a pipeline of working with both software and infrastructure including migration and decommissioning.
An upstream team gathers requirements from customers about applications and ensures that customers can either self-serve or move into one of two delivery tracks. They author user stories, ensure firm acceptance criteria and define patterns and business outcomes.
A dedicated Feature Team then take those User Stories and deliver them with the upstream team attending the Sprint Review to take custody of the delivery.
Both teams use Jira and have mature user story processes
As the SM for the Feature Team I want to be able to take User Stories from the Upstream Team, from their backlog, and show them in our Sprint without moving them directly between backlogs.
- Bulk moving stories to the Feature Team backlog/project and then back to the Upstream Team upon completion (not ideal / unwieldy / loss of golden thread)
- Tagging stories with a manual tag showing the Feature Team Sprint (not ideal as it does not feed into the Jira reporting metrics. It is just a tag).
- Editing the "Sprint" field in the User Story to show the Sprint that the story has been pulled into
Two projects. Two backlogs. Team A do a portion of the stories for Team B and pull them into their Sprint but the stories do not show up in the Jira Sprint, in the Burndown or the Sprint Report pages.
I am looking for a Jira answer. Please don't respond with Organizational changes or other such critiques of the Programme delivery as much as you may want to. It is nothing that has not been debated at length in a Programme of 250+ people. Apologies if that sounds curt but this forum has a tendency to drop straight into coaching mode and skirt the actual question.
