How can I assign story points to the Task level?

I've seen documentation on assigning points to the sub-task level. How do I assign points to a task? Currently my flow is to go to the story, add field > select Story Points and enter points.

For Tasks, there is no option to add Story Points to it.

You need to change the field context for Story Points - check that is set as valid for the right issue types.  Go to Admin -> Issues -> Custom fields to check and change it.  You may also need to add it to screens and check the field configuration

Thank you smile The answer was in Custom Fields, indeed

If we use custom fields for story points in tasks, can we use those custom fields in Burn Down/up reports?

Yes, the board will use whatever field you choose.
