Previously, clicking on a sprint project brought you to the sprint board instead of the project board. Now it's the other way around, which is a lot of extra clicking.

Easy (temporary fix): Find the project via the "Projects" link on the main Phabricator page, and click it. Change the URL from, for example,

You can also create a custom dashboard with a text link.

Neither of these is a sustainable solution, but works in a pinch.

Yeah I can definitely access the board, it's just annoying. Thanks for the
workaround. Any idea when this might get fixed?

Another way to get there (many extra clicks): navigate to the correct board by clicking the project, then the project profile, then "view sprint board" from the options on the right.

I should add that this is especially annoying when you're working actively on updating tasks in a sprint project. Navigating back to the board from updates is something I often do by clicking the project name in the "projects" list because hitting back in the browser goes back through the editing flow. Now there's no good way to get back to the sprint view.

BTW, I found this restoration of expected behaviour really helpful. I'd be sad for the 'regression' to be 'fixed'.

Nooo it's so many more clicks for me, @Jdforrester-WMF. Why don't you want
the sprint board for your sprint projects?

@Jdforrester-WMF before this regression, you could achieve the same by navigating to a project through the "Projects" link (as opposed to search). See
T89249 for reasoning why the Sprint-Extension has been kept separate from the main Phab UI.

I can't actually find any upstream changes that should have broken this.

Weird... it definitely used to work differently.

Thanks for looking into it @mmodell. Are there any next steps we can help with to resolve this issue?

FYI: This is something that is unique to the installation as I cannot reproduce this locally or on the test server at It therefore must be a configuration or WMF customization issue.

If more than one library is loaded with load-libraries, this would possibly be why this has happened on PhutilSymbolLoader will only allow a single library to override default controller routes.

My instance definately only loading one library with load-libraries, which is sprint extension and I'm having this issue too. Most of my config is default.

I would really really like this to get fixed.
