Is it possible to bulk delete work logs?

I accidentally added the wrong end date for a repeat work log and now I have about 40 logs I want to delete but can't find a way to alter the end date nor bulk select in order to delete in one go.  Do I really need to go in and delete each one individually?

And FYI for any Atlassian employees reading this, I tried to check the help pages but I just get a blank display when I click the question mark icon.

You would need to check with Atlassian, as they will need to do this for you. only possible on the version server via SQL command.

I've been able to do this with a JMWE action that looks like this


{% for id in issue | worklog | field("id") %}
{{ "/rest/api/3/issue/:issue/worklog/:logID" | callJira(verb="Delete",params={"issue":issue.key,"logID":id}) | dump(2)}}
{% endfor %}

Ok thanks.

Seems to me this is an oversight. Bulk delete is very basic functionality.

But that's typical of Atlassian - astonishingly they didn't even have a copy functionality or a bulk create until very recently, and that is such a glaring oversight too.  But you'd have thought they'd have implemented bulk delete when they implemented that.
