what field is required (from the drop down) to trigger the burndown for remaining hours?
I have searched and can't figure it out....yes sure story points (SP) shows but that doesn't help bc SP are only closed once the epics are done.
Welcome to Atlassian Community!
You must be estimating your stories with time tracking fields instead of Story points to display the information in the Burndown Chart.
The field that should be selected to change the burndown Chart to display hours instead of Story Points is the Original Time Estimate:
If it's not properly appearing to you, you must activate the Time Tracking feature for your site and configure the field for your Stories, as described in the documentation below:
Let me know if this information helps.
The field required should be "Remaining" not "Original".
The "Original" value should not change, as it's the team's estimate.
When hours are logged, the "Remaining" value is reduced, not "Original" (which is correct) so a burn down for "Remaining" is required.
