Hello @Prudvi Kumar Penmetsa

By tasks you mean "Task" type or "sub-tasks" because sub-tasks aren't included in the Burndown chart.

As per the docs

The Burndown Chart is board-specific – that is, it will only include issues that match your board's saved filter

So if the board filter includes Tasks and you have estimated them then they will be included in the burndown chart when they are moved to the rightmost  column of the board (Done etc).

The issue of using story points, that you can not view the story points burn on daily base , you can just view it once the task is completed ,for that  reason the burndown chart for tasks that have story points, they appear like a ladder, you just can view them by completing the tasks but in between you can not feel it

Hope my answer adds any value to you

Hi @Prudvi Kumar Penmetsa ,


The latest version of our Great Gadgets plugin offers this. The sprint and release burndown gadgets have an option to include sub-tasks, which you could use to achieve this.  The plugin is available for both Jira Server ( & Jira Cloud (
