Show Story Points Indicator on Backlog

Hi! I want to show the story points for a story on the backlog. I have found how I can add a field, but this also adds an entire row making the backlog less comprehensible. I remember in the past there would be a grey circle with the amount of story points written in it at the end of each row of the backlog. How can I set that up?

Story points are automatically shown in the backlog as soon as you set a value in the story being shown:

That's what I thought! But exactly the grey circle with the estimation you show in your printscreen does not show up in my backlog, also after I estimated it. Looking for the setting that removed it / to add it back in the list.

In my case it shows the priority by the way, a red, orange etc. arrow.

Maybe it is one of those new kanban boards, with backlog as a new feature, instead of a scrum board?

I think you can fix it by following these steps:

  1. Go to Board > Configure > Estimation
  2. Change Estimation from Issue Count to Story Points
