I would like to have the time spent on issues logged automatically by the system. The way it should work is each time someone starts working on an issue the system starts counting and when they stop working on it it should stop counting and log the time. This for each time this happens for the issue. Finally when the issue is closed the total time should be logged as the time spent on the issue.
I know its possible that people log the time they have worked on each issue, but believe this should be easily done by the system automatically. How can this be done?
You'll need to find or write some code to do this. A post-function or listener that traps the Start and Stop events and updates the work log automatically for your users.
However. You are using OnDemand, which doesn't allow you to install the code that this would need.
I have the same issue as Martin. We need to log the time spent automatically. We found this plugin - https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.fca.jira.plugins.workflowToolbox.workflow-toolbox/version/50 to extends the functionality of post functions. However we did not manage to log the time so far.
If you could guide me which function to use, it would be a great help.
You have a detailed description on how to implement it using JIRA Workflow Toolbox: https://bitbucket.org/fcarmario/jira-workflow-toolbox/wiki/amazing/Automatic%20Work%20Log%20With%20Start%20and%20Stop%20Work%20Transitions
In the How to do it section, Work Start Time is reference to have a field code of 10002. But then in the Configuration of "Stop Progress" transition section, the example uses 10300 as the field code of the Work Start Time field.
Is this just a typo?
Or is there some other translation of field codes that I am missing?
There is a new app on the Marketplace, Clockwork Automated Timesheets, that does exactly that. It fully integrates with Jira's workflow so that the time logged corresponds to how much time an issue was In Progress or had any other active status. If necessary, the timers can always be started or stopped manually by using convenient buttons. There are also reports available.
It all comes for free, together with highly responsive support which is keen on hearing any suggestions or feature requests.
You can find more information and screenshots on the app's page on the Marketplace.
