No trend line in burndown chart

My team recently started using Jira to track our body of work.  We are on our third, 2-week sprint.  The burndown chart continues not to display the gray trend line and only the orange line which is the actual work being completed.

Any idea why we aren't seeing the trend line in the burndown chart?  I do see it on the burnup chart.



This might be because you don't have a start/end date on the sprint or no working days set on that board/project. Not sure if it would know what to predict if it doesn't know how long it is. 

Hello @Diatta Harris 

Are you working with a Company Managed project or a Team Managed project?

What is the Estimation Statistic for your scrum board? Story points, issue count, ...?

The gray trend line is based on the value of the Estimation Statistics sum for the issues assigned to the sprint when your sprint is started. Are you adding your issues to the sprint before starting it and also setting your estimates on the issues before you click the Start Sprint button?
