From the GreenHopper Classic Chart Board you can display the Burnup Chart for a Custom Statistic Field (number field). Learn more about these charts here.
To view the burnup chart by custom field,
- Log into JIRA.
Select Agile > Classic in the top navigation bar. Then select Classic Chart Board from the drop-down below the project name.
- Select your project from the project dropdown (top left of the Chart Board above the 'Chart Board' dropdown), if it is not already selected. The Chart Board will refresh with information for your project.
- Using the Chart Board Navigation Bar, select the version whose chart you wish to view in the Version dropdown, then select Statistics Burnup Chart, the custom field, and Daily/By Children from the subsequent dropdowns. The burnup chart of the custom field's number of units will be displayed (see screenshots below).
Your custom field's 'number of units' could relate to anything you have defined for that field (e.g. 'business value'); and the 'Daily'/'By Children' dropdown is only shown if child versions are available.
- The 'View Version' dropdown only includes versions which contain issues that belong to at least one unreleased Fix Version (and belong to a project that is enabled for GreenHopper).
- The chart's 'Start Date' and 'End Date' are the Fix Version's dates defined on your Planning Board. If not defined on your Planning Board, the 'End Date' is the 'Release Date' defined in the JIRA version (see Managing Versions); or today's date, if not defined in JIRA.
- You can toggle items in the chart on and off, by selecting or clearing their check boxes in the legend under the chart.
- You can also print the chart by clicking the version's Actions menu in the Statistics Column and selecting 'Print Chart' from its dropdown. Please refer to the Chart Board - Statistics Column section for details.
- The burnup chart provides you with the following information:
- Burned Values - Completed (solid line) ('DAILY' only) — The custom field's number of units (for example, business value) being gained in the lead-up to the version release date.
- Burned Values - Ongoing (dotted line) ('DAILY' only) — The number of remaining custom field units gained since midnight on the current day. The gradient of this curve may change throughout this day.
- Burned Values - Trend (dashed line) ('DAILY' only) — The projection of remaining custom field units to be gained until the version release date, based on the actual unit gain data from the start of the project.
- Guideline (solid line) ('DAILY' only) — The ideal burnup. This is computed with the remaining estimates, not the original estimates of the number of custom field units at the version's start date. Hence, this calculation makes the guideline slope more accurate and precise.
- Required daily burnup rate (solid line) ('DAILY' only) — The daily gain rate of custom field units required to attain your goal.
- Required daily burnup rate - Ongoing (dotted line) ('DAILY' only) — The daily gain rate of custom field units required to attain your goal, since midnight on the current day. The gradient of this curve may change throughout this day.
- Parent burned values (bars) ('BY CHILDREN' only) — The number of custom field units remaining by children.
Typically, 'children' relates to a series of customised time segments with each 'child' representing a 'sub' version, such as a 'milestone', 'iteration' or 'sprint'.
An issue watched field value will be added to the total burned value as soon as this issue is associated with a resolution. You will then be able to track the sum of burned value for all issues in the displayed version.

If the selected version is a Parent version version, you can see the burnup chart of this version grouped by children. For example, a release burnup by Sprints.
The line across the middle of this chart is the average burned value (that is, the sum of custom field units of each bar, divided by the number of bars), rounded up to the next integer value.
