Jira Agile Burndown Chart not decreasing after remaining estimate is set to zero through a workflow.

We are facing a rare problem here. We have a workflow that sets to zero the remaining estimate of issues that are closed before the total estimated time expected. So in the burndown chart this should be reflected with a decreased time for that issue, but its not happening. It does work well when someone logs work and selects to reduce the remaining estimate.

Any suggestion?

How do you set the RE to 0 ? Using some plugin?

Through the workflow... in the post conditions you can select set RE to a value in the "Update issue field" function of a transition.

Setting the RE is not like setting any other fields. My immediate guess is that plugin you're using is messing the 'remaining estimate'.

To confirm that:

1. Install JJupin (I know we're doing it right)

2. instead of that postfunction, add a JJupin postfunction with the script:

estimate = 0;

3. test it, see if this is still there

4. If yes, there's another issue going on.

If not, file a bug on the plugin.

5. Uninstall JJupin.

Of course, do it on a test system.

Thanks Radu, but it's not a solution, we would have to pay for it, and its not worth for the moment. Plus... Jira Agile itself should be capable of doing it right.
