Restrict back dated work log entries

Greetings everyone,

I was checking if anyone can help me with our issue here.

1. We wanted to restrict all back dated entries. Users who have not logged their hours for a particular day will not be able to log the hours for previous days.

2. If this is available - Can this be restricted at project level? We manage multiple projects in JIRA and we wanted to know if this can be done at an account level or can be managed at project level as well.


Looking forward to some help and assistance. Thanks in advance for your time.

You cannot restrict backdating the worklog hours out of the box.  If you use Tempo Timesheets, you can restrict based on the pay period, but anything is "game" as long as it's within the pay period itself.  Additionally, you could restrict users from editing their hours after they've submitted.  But, restricting them the way you described isn't possible to the best of my knowledge.

With respect to the restrictions at the project level, I recommend you look at your permission scheme.  There, you'll see that there's a section for worklog hours.

Hi @Prakash Gajghate ,

welcome to the Atlassian community!

unfortunately you can't do that using builtin capabilities. You can limit logwork in a specif statuses through workflow properties but not based on time. My suggestion is to try Tempo Timesheet for JIRA. Using that plugin you can restrict logwork for a closed period. Period can be configured in tempo administration.

Hope this helps,
