How to estimating in Story Points in JIRA Agile?

I'm using JIRA version: 7.0.0-OD-04-018 and I have configured:

  • Estimation Statistic: Story Points
  • Time Tracking: Remaining Estimate and Time Spent

I would estimate each task in Story Points and also put values as Story Points in the field "remaining" (integer value) instead of at the time.
Is it possible?

Hi Grzegorz,

The type of units used by the 'Remaining' field (e.g. hours) is affected by your Tracking Statistic. Remaining field is part of Time tracking and there is no such field called "remaining Story Point" in JIRA Agile. A story is done when it is complete and its burned once completely done.

You can check where your question is answered. Hope this helps.


Hi Taha, Thank You for answer, but there is no option such as Tracking Statistic: Story Points. I can choose Tracking Statistic: None - but in this option "issues will burn down their Story Points value upon completion". If you choose this option it will not be able to type anything in the remaining field. I would like to remove Story Points by myself i.e. I have issue that I estimate for 10 SP. After 1 day of work I wonder to insert "remaining Story Points" = 8

Yes Grzegorz you are right, None will be burn down as Story Points. Corrected Orignal answer.
