Rapid board burndown in new column

In the rapid board, (using scrum) a story is being burned down when it is marked closed.

I have inserted another column before closed (called testing, which otherwise works correctly) with relavent 'testing' status

Is there a way for the task burn down to occur at this stage rather than when the task is changed to the closes status,

As development burndown is determined by the development team making the code available to the QA team rather than the QA team later confirming that the item is correct.

According to https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/6569/how-do-you-burndown-story-points-in-greenhopper-on-a-daily-basis ...

"GreenHopper does support burning points. When you complete the story the points will be burned. As Tommy points out the right hand side column is your definition of done, so once a story is done it will be burned."

since the defination of done is fixed the requirement is not achievable...


You can try setting a resolution for the Testing status. But I don't think you will be able to have two burndown charts.

Resolution is set in the 'Resolved' stage per the default jira workflow, which is prior to the addition of the 'testing' stage, unforuately this does not seem to be the criteria by which the rapid board burn down chart 'burns' down a task.
