How to make Jira set original estimate to 0 when task is FIXED?

Uing new Jira board (non classic one)

I found strange behaviour of sprint bundown chart, it shows also DONE tasks original estimates, as if nothing is closed.

Checked the log under the burndown chart and found that as soon as I manually set "Original estimate" to 0 for done tasks hours Burndown starts showing correct state of the sprint.

Two questions:

1. Not sure this is correct (as if original estimate is set to 0 historical data how much it was is gone)?

2. If this is the only way to get correct burndown, how setup Jira in the way to drop original estimate to 0 as soon as task is set to DONE.

Thanks for your help in advance,

Aquarius.

It's actually not Original Estimate, it is Remaining Estimate . Read https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRAKB/Set+Remaining+Estimate+to+0+on+post+function
