Update timeSpent field Edited

Can someone explain to me why my code is bad?



I put my code:


def time = "1m"

def result2 = put("/rest/api/2/issue/${linkKey}")
.header('Content-Type', 'application/json')
.queryString("overrideScreenSecurity", Boolean.TRUE)
fields: [
worklog: [
timeSpent: time
if (result2.status >= 200 && result2.status < 300) {'success 2')
} else {
return "${result2.status}: ${result2.body}"

Hi Eduard,

Thank you for your question above.

I can confirm that in order to log work on an issue that you need make a call to the Update Worklog rest API which Atlassian have documented here passing the parameters outlined on this page in order to update a worklog.

The rest endpoint that you are calling inside of your script is incorrect which is the reason why you are unable to add a worklog to an issue, and you will need to use the endpoint outlined in the API documentation page above to set a worklog on an issue.

I have created an example script which you can view here which shows how you can update the time spent value for a worklog on an issue and you will be able to take this example script and use it as a reference to create the script that you require to achieve your requirements.

If this response has answered your question can you please mark it as accepted so that other users can see it is correct when searching for similar answers.



Thank's for the repository
