Add Tempo Worklog Attribute to Jira Screen


  1. We've configured a required Worklog Attribute "ABC",
  2. On "Close Issue" it is possible to log work, but the required field "ABC" is not shown there

Is it possible to add such fields to screens as well?

Hi Adrian.

It is not possible to add Tempo Worklog Attribute on JIRA Screens, they are only added to the Tempo Log work screen. The log work field you added to the "close issue screen" is the JIRA log work field, but not the Tempo log work field. Those two are separate fields, even though the JIRA log work entry ends up in Tempo.

I hope this explains.

Hello Sandra,

Thanks for the fast answer. Would be nice if Tempo would/could support these dialogs somewhen.

Hi Sandra,

How do we validate a user logged work before resolving/closing a ticket? I want that mandatory that work is logged before the ticket is resolved. I wanted to do that by adding a validator in the workflow transition and couldnot figure out which fields I should select.

Hi Mehmet.

If you want log work to be mandatory, how will you solve duplicate issues or issues that are created by accident and need to be closed without logging work?

This is not possible within Tempo and I don't know about a field in JIRA to do this.

If you can create a custom field based on work ratio or something similar, then the JIRA Suite Utility plugin might help.

Hi Adrian and Mehmet

Here is a request for this feature within our support system: If you wish to see this issue go forward, please vote and comment on it.

Best regards,
