Burndown Chart is trending down to the wrong date.

Our sprints are 2 weeks but our burndown charts span 4 weeks. The trendline in the chart trends for 4 weeks. As you can see in the screenshot, our sprint is Jan 20 - Feb 2. I would expect the trendline to reach zero on Feb 2 but it doesn't hit zero until Feb 15. Consequently, the burndown chart is ineffective at judging the pace of the sprint.

How do I fix my project/board/sprint so it trends to the correct date?

We're using a classic project with a scrum board. I'm an admin but not the owner.

Hi @Jeff Magill 

Please check the active sprint close date in the Backlog screen in Jira.

Please see if the start date and end date are set correctly.

This was the issue. Thanks!
