Setting a story point limit for a Sprint

I have the Story Points field enabled and I think somewhere in Greenhopper there is the function to set a Story Point limit for a Sprint and if you drag storys in that exceed the limit the column goes red.

Where do you set this limit? Cant find it anywhere!

I'm on the latest versions of both Jira and Greenhopper.

Thanks!

Think I might have found the answer although it's not quite what I expected. Under Agile - Planning Board on the right hand side is a Statistics button. Click that and then edit the Story point max limit to what your teams velocity is and check the Markers tick box.

Then if anything is added to that Sprint and the points exceed that limit something else will move out below the Marker line.

Yes, you are right. Please remember to tick the Markers checkbox to that it will be shown on the Planning Board when the story points exceed the limit. You can refer to this documentation as a guideline: http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/GH/Using+Statistical+Markers+to+Group+Issues

Looks like you found it, Mark. Yes, it's the staticstics marker.
