How to add expected burndown to burndown chart

Hello! I am using scrum and Jira for the first time and I have a question regarding the burndown chart. It seems to be tracking our progression just fine, but the gray "expected progression" line is nowhere to be seen. Strangely though, the burn-UP chart includes this line, only inverted since it goes from bottom to top instead. Any tips on how to fix the burndown chart?

@Mikkel Honningsvåg Sandhaug - hi Mikkel! Is this on a Scrum board, or a Kanban board?

If Scrum, do you have an active sprint that's underway, with issues that have Story Points defined?

Yep, and like I said I get the burndown and burnup charts displayed for the sprint, but on the burndown one there is no "expected burndown"

And yes this is for scrum, and all stories have points! :)

@Mikkel Honningsvåg Sandhaug - can you attach a screenshot here, please?

First one is burndown, second is burnup. I know they look weird, but its because we started using Jira halfway into the sprint and therefore set the sprint-start several days before we added the issues.

I totally get it - is this a service desk project, and you created a Scrum board to manage sprints?

This is a university project, and we are essentially obligated to include burndown charts in our final "exam" :')

@Mikkel Honningsvåg Sandhaug - ha, let me rephrase: is your Jira project a "Service Desk" project (powered by Jira Service Management), or just a regular Jira project? Here's an article on the differences between each: https://support.atlassian.com/jira-service-management-cloud/docs/what-is-a-service-project/

It is a "classic software project" according to the project page, is that what you were wondering?
