Cannot get data labels to display on a pie chart

I am trying to get my data labels to display on a pie chart but I am unable to do so.

I have tried both 

plotOptions.series.dataLabels.enabled = true


plotOptions.pie.series.dataLabels.enabled = true

They do not work on a pie chart however, once I change it to a bar chart you can see the labels.

Has anyone else had this problem?

Maybe try Boolean.FALSE or Boolean.TRUE

Try just:

series.dataLabels.enabled = true

You could also change the format of the label to include the percentage of the pie:

series.dataLabels.format =  {} {point.percentage:.1f}%
