Allow Original Estimate to add time as .5 rather than 30m


My company got recently migrated from Jira Server to Jira Cloud.

Before, we used to be able to add Original Estimates (when creating tickets) in decimals. Meaning that for half an hour we used to input .5 rather than 30m. Now that we are in Jira Cloud, it seems like that time tracking option/configuration doesn't exist any longer

Does anybody know if there's a way to allow the Original Estimate (time tracking) field to allow input as decimals rather than following the 1h 30m input?

Here's an example:


We use Tempo Timesheets.

Hi @Nestor Ibarra 

Welcome to the community!

Modify the values as follows: "Settings" --> Issues --> Issue Features and select Time Tracking:

Hi, thanks for replying.

Yeah, that setting is the first thing I configured when I migrated to Jira Cloud. But, it doesn't resolve the problem at all.


The field I'm using in the screen is the Time Tracking one
