Burndown chart in JIRA Agile shows wrong info


I have an issue with how Burndown chart displaying graph, Suppose i have 1 Story point Issue under that 20 sub task these are under 1 sprint and out of that 4 have been done/resolved. when i move to burndown chart i can see that the graph still shown a straight line rather it should show that 25% of work has been done.

The graph shows completed only when all sub task under Story has been completed.


Can anyone please help me on this issue.

I think it is normal. Refer to the 'Definition of Done'. A task story that is at 99% is not completed.

Akash, JIRA only burns up all the points of astory when it is complete

@Radu Dumitriu @Lakshmi Samudrala:Thanks for the update.

 Jira only lets you burndown points when a story is completed. In a way, that is right, since a story partially done has no real value to the customer. If you believe that even a partial story does deliver value, then split your story further.
