It is the time axis of the chart - the chart shows the remaining user story points as a function of time. Do you have a more specific question about it?

Thank @Petar Petrov!

i am understand as you, too. But i  am viewing chart by "Original Time Estimated" parameter and the sprint will run one week/ 1 sprint.

  • I dont understand about the hour metric beside date

@Petar Petrov do you have skype? can i contact with you by skype?

The y-axis is the time estimation for the stories in the sprint in hours. The x-axis is time - it begins when your sprint start and ends when your sprint ends. The x-axis also shows time for your convenience, since the sprint is short and the chart zoom level is high. See the documentation for more information.


@Petar Petrov [Botron] pls follow as this image, i dont understand the metric which the red arrow is focusing.
In addition, i am not still clear about relationship between Jira's burndown chart
with metric of time tracking in each ticket's detail: how are they connnect together?


@Petar Petrov [Botron] pls help me. thankyou!


Hi Jay,

This is not a metric - this is the time axis - it shows you the date/time at which the values of the metric above (the burndown chart) are taken. In your case it shows that on July 25-th at 16h there were about 100 hours remaining in the sprint, at July 26-th 00h (midnight) there were 110-nish hours remaining and so on. The time spend stays at 0 in your case. The burndown shows the sum of all hours remaining for the issues in the spring for a given time. Please read the docs which I referred you to. Also, keep track of the issue in the sprint and their time tracking and check the chart periodically - this will help you understand what it shows.

Hi @Petar Petrov [Botron]

But i want to remove these time metric and only display the date metric as the attached image.

The periods (00-08-16) are not match with our real working time start 8h30 to 12h for morning and start 13h30 to 18h for afternoon. I dont understand their meaning and i dont find the place to config them in the administrator. i want to remove them!


This is a the example image.
