Greenhooper/Jira Agile - Howto setup the burndown logic? Howto define the status for burn down?


we switched from "classice view" to the "new agile view".

but we are missing the option to setup the status to burn down the chart.

is there any option to define the status?

it seems like only DONE is used to burn down the story points.

it would be very helpful to have the option to set the status manually.

Hi Roy, As far as I know, the status that will be used for burndown is the status configured in the last column of your agile board. So, depending on which status is in the last column, that will be the one used for the burndown


not the best solution because we want to burn doen the chart before the tickets are closed.

normally a ticket is DONE before it is closed.

it would be great to have an option in the future to define any column.

is this a known feature for the atlassian developer team?


yeah. we move it to the last column when we deploy. seems nuts that I can't make another column burn down.
