I' m after some advice on the best way to setup reporting for a mix of data from Tempo and Jira.
What we want to do is set a date range (usually Quarterly) and quickly extract some simple reports that show Time Logged:
What I also need to do is cut the different reports by JIRA Project Categories (which are linked/grouped to different company departments).
On the surface this doesn't sound like it should be too difficult but i'm struggling
If I use the JIRA Search/JQL and export the data I only get the roll-up of Time Logged per issue, I don't get a breakdown if multiple users have contributed time to an issue (and the date range filter is by Issue Date not by WorkLog date).
If I use the Tempo GetWorkLog API to dump the XML Data into Excel I miss the JIRA Project Name, JIRA Project Category and a few other fields.
The Tempo Widgets are great for visualisations, but don't let you select date ranges.
The Tempo Timesheets Report seems to lack alot of the information i'm after as well.
Are there any suggestions on the best way to do (and automate) this - I don't want to have to get involved every quarter with each different department
Even if I can get the data in a simple format into Excel I could build some Pivot Tables to generate the reports?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Chris, thanks for your feedback.
Can I assume that you use the JIRA server version of Tempo Timesheets?
You should be able to get your required information from the Timesheet section by switching to the report view, select the time period and export the report to excel.
Depending on the amount of users (and worklogs) in your instance you could run the report at once or in parts. The excel report includes all necessary fields besides the JIRA project category. The "hours available" is handled in Tempo by setting a workload and a holiday scheme so you will need to sync this information with your HR system.
Hi Alexander, I appreciate your direct response to the original detailed request. I don't have as detailed requirements and don't want to have to export data constantly or develop an excel solution, but we do use issue types. Is there any way to group the native Tempo Timesheet reports by Issue Type? Thanks! (We also have JIRA Server.)
Thanks for the reply!
I've tried running the Timesheet Report export as you described above and it looks like its getting me about 80% there
2 more questions for you...
you are not able to add the issue due and resolved date to the excel export unless you add them as JIRA custom fields.
I am not sure what you want to achieve with JIRA estimate fields. As there might be already logged work on the issue before the report date which will give you misleading information. The remaining estimates are show the number at the moment when you print the report.
Hope that helps. But you are welcome to come back to me at any time.
