I want to have the estimation component (number in grey circle) on the Kanban backlog board (Estimation.png). When i add it as a story point field it doesn't appear in the grey circle, it doubles the size of each ticket and just adds a number below. (See Kanban.png).
How it currently is working:
That functionality is currently not availible with the Kanban backlog.
If you compare documentation for Kanban and Scrum, you will see this is not one of the listed functionalities.
Incredible that this isn't available by default and that they haven't added yet with Kanban practices as defined by LKU/David Andersen growing across the industry - Kanban isn't just first in first out, policies dictate work, and estimation, while not required in a WIP-centric model, nevertheless can be utilized for planning and replenishment.
This topic may be two years old, but there are suggestion tickets with Atlassian that are over seven years old!
Please, if you come to this post, please also vote for the above suggestions so that Atlassian can get a clearer idea of the number of people who would like this added.
EDIT: please also vote for this more specific feature suggestion that was raised in 2017: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JSWCLOUD-16957. It matches this question exactly.
