How to change the "Time Logged" field via groovy?

Hi,

For some reason (potential workaround for issue described here ) I would like to be able to change the "Time Logged" field.

I have been able to change the "Time Logged" field only via the MutableIssue.store() method, but neither by using the IssueManager.upateIssue() method nor the IssueService.update() method.

Obviously I do not want to use the MutableIssue.store() method because it has been deprecated.

Any hint? 

MutableIssue.store() - Works

IssueManager issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
MutableIssue issue = issueManager.getIssueObject("TASKTEST-315")
ApplicationUser user =  ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser();

Long val = 3600 * 4


issue.setTimeSpent(val)
issue.store()

 

IssueService.update() - Does not work

IssueManager issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
MutableIssue issue = issueManager.getIssueObject("TASKTEST-315")
ApplicationUser user =  ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser();
IssueService issueService = ComponentAccessor.getIssueService()

Long val = 3600 * 4

IssueInputParameters inputParameters = issueService.newIssueInputParameters()
inputParameters.setTimeSpent((Long)(val/60))
IssueService.UpdateValidationResult validationResult = issueService.validateUpdate(user,issue.id,inputParameters)
issueService.update(user, validationResult)

 

 

IssueManger.updateIssue() - Does not work

IssueManager issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
MutableIssue issue = issueManager.getIssueObject("TASKTEST-315")
ApplicationUser user =  ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser();

Long val = 3600 * 4


issue.setTimeSpent(val)
issueManager.updateIssue(user,issue,EventDispatchOption.ISSUE_UPDATED,false)

I usually use IssueManager.updateIssue(), but it is better to use this one because it is compatible JIRA6 and 7:

ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().updateIssue(
        ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getUser()
        , issue
        , UpdateIssueRequest.builder().eventDispatchOption(EventDispatchOption.ISSUE_UPDATED).sendMail(false).build()
)

Also check that you have permission to log time?

You could get more information about errors into atlassian-jira.log.

Hi Vasiliy, thank you for your answer. I tried the code that you suggested, but it did no work. As per my original post, the only method that I have found being successful so far is MutableIssue.store(). The code that you suggested works fine if I want to change other fields (e.g. summary), but it does not work when I want to change the "TimeSpent" (TimeLogged) field.

I have checked and verified that I have the permissions to log time.

Neither atlassian-jira.log nor catalina.out report any error when I execute your code.

Thanks.

Could you check as admin that you have a permission to log time for issue?

Was there any solution? I am having the same problem with "Time Logged" changing.  issue.store() works fine, but it's depricated.
