Global configuration for Scrum Poker

Field for confirmed estimation

Select the custom field that is used to persist the confirmed estimations when completing a Scrum Poker session.

Jira Software creates the field Story Points for estimations. Since this field is translated into your Jira system language it might have another label. In a German Jira instance this field is called Story Punkte for example.

It is preferred to choose this field because estimations that are saved into this field are displayed in the estimation badge on the backlog of agile boards.

Session Timeout

Adjust the session timeout of Scrum Poker sessions in hours. Sessions older than this timeout will not be shown on the Active Sessions page to keep this page clean and intuitive.
