how to collect the time taken for development during pull request generation

Developer complete the task by coding and checks in his code to stash. Then he generates pull requests which can automatically update the JIRA workflow status. Now many companies would like to collect the time taken (effort for the development). Now if there is a provision in stash to collect the effort which can be directly updated at JIRA. This way developer doesn't have to manually go and update JIRA.

You might want to elaborate on the question a bit.

Elaborated now

Do you want Stash to measure something or do you want to present the user with a place where they can enter a number? (The first one would probably give you bad data, the second one is probably possible on the Jira side of the connection.)

Yes. I'm expecting the second one. If developer has to do that in JIRA. That time, he can update the JIRA workflow as well. The automatic transition (from Stash to JIRA) purpose will be defeated right?

I am not a pro in configuring JIRA transitions based on Stash events.

There are two possibilities:

  • It might be possible in the JIRA transition to pop up a question about the time used.
  • On the Stash side, you can write a plugin that listens to an event (not sure which one you will need), asks for the number and writes it into JIRA.
