Generating a Burn-up or Build-up chart

I was trying to figure out how to configure Jira 5.2 to show me the overall project's story point build-up/burn-up chart for a scrum board.

At present, Jira 5.2 can be configured to show the story point burndown for a single sprint.

But I need to see the burn-up (or even a burn-down) across sprints.

In other words, if a project comprises of 3 sprints and overall 80 story points and in sprint 1, the team delivered 20 story points, in sprint 2, 30 story points and in sprint 3, 20 story points, I should be able to see the cumulative buildup/burn-up of 70 points that the team delivered out of the total 80 story points in a chart with X-axis being sprint number and Y-axis being the total story points.

Is that something that can be configured in the current Jira 5.2? If no, is there a plugin for it?

Hey there, Arun.

As of now, neither JIRA nor GreenHopper has the ability to show the Burndown Chart for all / multple sprints in that particular project. However, there is already an open ticket that is discussing this matter. Make sure you add yourself as a watcher and vote for it too:

Hope this helps to clear things on your side.

Warm regards,


Thanks. This helps.
