But when I have a M(3 Points) it sums 5 to my wip :

 Do you have a child story with like 2 story points?

 Hi Ralph

No , it does not have any child .It only occurs when I select 3 or more. When i select 1 point or 2 points it says 1 or 2. But when I select 3 , the WIP goes to 5. Also you can seee the progress goes to 0/5.

 Please check the literal number for your WIP, maybe it is 5.

 Hi Ralph 

What do you mean by "Literal number"? Do you mean "Literal value"?
This is my enumeration :

This is a SAFe template.

Kevin Ramer commented May 25 '17, 3:37 p.m.

The literal value means look at the Process Configuration source to find the line that corresponds to each entry of the enumeration

<literal id="1" name="1 pt"/>

The id= should be numeric for the enumeration. e.g. for name="S" should have id="2"

There are other answers in this forum that describe how to correct if you see id="literal.xxxx.l10" or similar.
