Bulk edit 'Time Spent' field


I have a large number of epics & stories that I need to close, when performing a bulk change I am getting stuck as the 'Time Spent' is require (Usually this dialog appears when manually trying to move an issue to 'Done')

I would like to perform a bulk edit, enter the same figure for Time Spent, and move all tickets to Done.


Is this possible?

Hello Paul,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

The Time tracking functionalities such as Time Spent (Log work) are not available for bulk change.

There is a feature request suggesting the implementation of this ability:

For now, the workaround would be to remove the validator on the workflow to let the field optional, so you can bulk transition them and then, add the validator back for users to log work when closing a ticket.

Kind regards,
