SLA tracking in Ticket


I'm trying to get just a simple time tracker set up in the ticket where it shows the SLA times from open to paused to close/open to closed. I'm in the SLA project settings but when I go back to the issue ticket it'll show SLA then a loading circle for a couple seconds then just disappears. For right now the below SLA time to resolution is all I want. I'll add "Waiting on approvers" once I know the base is working properly. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi @Brad Krivelow ,

From the screenshots you've shared, it looks like you didn't define a "Time Goal" for your SLAs. This might be the reason why they don't show up.

You can refer to this article:

Please let me know if you have further questions.



Hi Gökçe,

Is there a way to just have no target goal time? Also, is there a way to have it say it took X amount of minutes/hours instead of saying it had X amount of minutes/hours left on the SLA?

Hi @Brad Krivelow ,

I'm afraid when there is no target time specified, SLA just doesn't work. Also, if you don't want to set a goal, then you don't need an SLA, you just need a timer. Jira doesn't offer one out of the box. I suggest looking at Marketplace.

As for the elapsed time, assuming that you want an SLA, JSD SLAs only show how much time you have left to meet the SLA. For this requirement, you can try Time to SLA as an alternative.

With Time to SLA, you can see elapsed time, paused time, and the remaining time on the SLA panel. You can also generate reports containing the elapsed of your SLAs (reported in the Working Duration column) and export them to Excel for further analysis.
