BigGantt Chart Not Showing the JIRA Due Dates Edited

I created a project with 11 epics and ~90 tasks. All the tasks have due dates. I created a Big Gantt chart (by using Add new Program) based off these JIRA tasks that have due dates already.  Unfortunately none of the due dates are showing up on the Gantt Chart. 


How do I change that? I would like the BigGantt chart to show the due dates of each of the tasks. 



Thank you,

N Ahmad

Hi Ahmad,

The Solution that worked for me.

Here the Gantt Chart plugin is considering End Date field as Due date, in the custom fields in Jira you can see a field with Name End Date, add that field to the project screens for which you want to see the Gantt chart and then fill the End Date field for the stories.

Then in the Gantt Chart, you can see the due dates for the stories.

Try this out once Ahmad.


So i'm in the same boat here and it looks like if I add a new field called End Date, I would basically have to manually change each issues' End Date, is this correct? I'm not seeing a way to copy or move Due Date to End Date and I also can't change the name of Due Date since Jira created it...
