How can I hide none working days in Burndown charts?

When viewing a burndown chart repot I really would like to be able to hide (or not include) non working days. They always cause burndown to -not burn down- over a weekend etc.

having this as a show/hide option would be great

Hi Axel, how's things? Sorry it's taken a while but I think you'll have to take it up with Atlassian. My original answer was for the normal burndown chart, not the rapid board charts (the question didn't say Rapid boards. although I should have guessed by the screenshot) .

The non-working days should work ok for classic burndown charts but the Rapid boards are still maturing as a product feature and the non-working days don't appear to work. There are a couple of jira issues you may want to watch & vote for. - a very long comment trail, worth a read

It's up to Atlassian to take it from here, sorry.

Thanks, but I already have the bulk setting at 5 day workweek. I also tried setting individual (static days) in Greenhopper general config without any effect in the burndown chart i.e. I set Sept 22/23 as non working but they still show up in the burndown as shown above.

just found out that the Greenhopper setting only apply to the classic as stated on the page "The configuration options below only apply to Classic Planning Board, Classic Task Board, Classic Chart Board and Classic Released Board." I am using the Rabit Board types, not the classic ones.

is there no reply ?

Sorry Axel, work gets in the way sometimes & my inbxo tends to flow quiet fast. I'll try & get back to you as soon as I can, sorry but I still have a full time job & two new borns twins keeping me very busy!

Still waiting for you to close this one Matthew

OK so there are issues on this elsewhere. Great.

This must me getting more focus for the Rabit boards since Atlassian is discontinuing the classic boards.

To those still interested: it's possible to modify the non-working days in the Burndown Chart, as of Greenhopper 6.1.1.

Same issue here. I'm trying remove the weekend from the burndown chart to get a more realistic prediction about the planned and done work.

Same issue here, I choose 5 working days, enter all holidays and they all show up in the burndown chart.....So you really get a false reading on the burndown chart.

Hi Mathew,

Hope the new borns will let you have some time really soon to get back and reply this one.....

thanks Axel, we took them to Australia to see the family, took a while to get back on our feet. babies with jet lag isn't much fun!


there is a story with the same content at Atlassian:
