Hello @Akshith Kumar ,

It's just a custom field named "Story points (DO NOT USE)" that is "not supposed to be used" according to your Jira admins.

You can change the "Estimation Statistic" to the custom field you use for your estimations from your board config :


Kind regards.

Hi @Akshith Kumar 

It looks like someone might have edited that field in your instance. 

Go to Settings > Issues > Custom Fields

Search for the Story Points field and see if that is what it has. 

If so, you need to find out why someone in your organization changed that.
