Changing default "Time Tracking Hours per Day"

Changing the value of "Working hours per day" from 8 to 12 and trying to specify a number of hours greater than 8 in the task results in the error message "9h exceeds daily limit of 8h". How and where is it managed?

Hi @Andrius Kačionas 

Check the configuration of the hours per day in Jira's time tracking configuration and if necessary modify the values as follows: "Settings" --> Issues --> Issue Features and select Time Tracking:

I hope it helps,


All this is known. The problem with this is that the hours you enter here have no effect - when you try to log more than 8 hours, you always get an error message that 8 hours are exceeded, even though a 12-hour workday has been set.
