I need agile features such as Kanban, burndown chart etc.

My JIRA version is 6.2.5. Do I need to upgrade to get them? If yes, to which release?

You don't need to upgrade.  You need to add the Agile add-on

(Or you could upgrade to JIRA 7 and add the "JIRA Software" application which is a replacement for the Agile add-on in JIRA 7)

Thank you for your answer.

I cannot find a JIRA Agile add-on.

I search in Atlassian Marketplace for JIRA for "JIRA Agile" but it does not come up.

Ah, yes, that's because the marketplace only really exposes "latest, and the change from "Agile" to "Software" has sort of confused the history a bit.  

You should be able to find it if you use the "universal plugin manager" inside JIRA, as that selects for the current version of JIRA.

Or just hit https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.pyxis.greenhopper.jira/versions and make sure you download and select a version that is supported for your version of JIRA.

You'll also need to licence this, and Atlassian's site won't talk about the Agile add-on, it'll make you get "Software".  But a licence key for Software will work for the Agile add-on.

Thank you, I downloaded a version compatible with JIRA 6.2.5 from  https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.pyxis.greenhopper.jira/versions
