Jira Burndown Chart

Please I need an assistance to understand this. I started a sprint with story points and time estimates added to the Sprint's user stories. However, the burndown chart is coming up with a vertical red line close to the y-axis i.e. Time Remaining Estimate line. I am wondering why this is not showing the guideline that run from the total time estimate axis to the sprint end date i.e. Time axis.

Does your sudden line co-incide with when you move your active issues into the last column on the board?

I have not started moving the issues.  I expect to provide guideline to be shown in burndown chart by default

Ah, the screenshot showed us that, and more!  Thanks!

That screenshot suggests that you've started a sprint and then started adding stories into it.

Yes, I started the Sprint after adding the required user stories but I have not started moving the issues in the sprint board swim lane i.e. from Backlog into In progress etcetera

That is not quite what the diagram says.  The diagram says you started the sprint and then added a load of estimated issues into it.  (I've emphasised started because started and created are not the same thing)

Could you explain if that is what happened?

@Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ i have questions, my project running with user story and break task by subtask, but subtask can't show in the burndown chart.
we should change from user story to epic, and after that break task by user story or not?
or we will break by another user story and linked issues ?
or split user story ?
please help me get the best solution.
thank you!

Stop putting sprint estimates on sub-tasks.
