Tempo Timesheet - Java API to set the account field in a worklog



We are scratching our head here.
We are using Tempo Timesheets, configured with an account worklog attribute.
What is the api to set this account



Check the exalate community post 
There is a specific use case where Account information needs to be synced between 2 jira servers.

Hi Francis,

can I ask you why you are not using the REST API instead?


Hi Alexander,

the REST API would be fine if we would not need to write the Basic Auth credentials into the script. Is there a way to get the credentials of the user executing the groovy script and use those to call the REST API?

Best Regards,

Hi Daniel,

you should refer to this script. So something like:

def loggedInUser = ComponentAccessor.jiraAuthenticationContext.loggedInUser
def credentials = ComponentAccessor.userPropertyManager.getPropertySet(loggedInUser).getString(userPropertyKey)

As you run the script as a certain user you need to make sure that this user has the correct permissions in Tempo.

Hope that helps 


Hi Alexander, 

thank you, this looks perfect. I will try this approach.

Hi Alexander,

as far as I can see we would still need to write the plaintext Passwort into the user-defined property in Jira in order to use the REST API with Basic Auth. Is this correct?

Users would not be able to change their Passwords themselfs (without breaking the Authentication) and the plaintext Password would still be visible to at least the admins as well. Is there no other way to authenticate?

Would App Links and OAuth be an Option?

best regards


that is beyond my knowledge. But as far as I know you don´t need to save the password as plain text in a User property. Maybe some more advances Groovy experts out there that can possibly answer that question. Still best way is to try it out.
