Burnout chart custom field

In the burndown chart, only three fields can be used to count Sprint. Our team wants to customize some fields to count the burndown graph. How can I add a custom field for the burndown graph?

The burndown charts use the "estimation statistic" selected in the board configuration.  That statistic must be a simple number (you can't do the required arithmetic on non-numbers), so the selection you are seeing are the three purely numeric fields you have in your system.

Time estimates are one field that's always there, Story points is the second that I would expect (Jira Software creates it by default, but it can be removed or renamed), and your third one is some other numeric custom field your admins have added.

If you want to see and use other fields there, then get your admins to add custom fields of the type "number"

thank you for your reply. After the custom field is successful, how does it achieve statistics? If I want this field to count the time spent by all members, how can I make this field correspond to the time spent by members?

Burndown is simple - you select a metric in the board config (time estimate, story points, or any other numeric field), and then burn down on cards positions on the board - last column is "done", others are not.
