Strange burndown chart view missing ideal line (guideline)

Hi, I have a problem with the ideal line (guideline) in my burndown chart. It is missing and it is NOT because I add stories after the sprint started.
If I look at the Sprint log file below the burndown chart, I can see that Jira Agile used the time I 'created the Sprint' as the 'Sprint start' time. So, in this case I created the sprint at 12:00pm before the Sprint planning meeting. The Sprint backlog got filled during the Sprint planning meeting and I 'started' the Sprint at 03:00pm after the Sprint planning meeting.

IMO this is a bug or am I doing someting wrong? Time should only start ticking when I hit the SPRINT START button. Where would you suggest to file issues like these? best,

Easy fix is to set the start time of the sprint to a future point in time. Then everything is caluculated correctly

I'm having this same problem as well.

Yup, setting start date to past was the problem. Edit the sprint and have it start today fixed it.
