Hi

 

I export the worklog data from a JSW project (Cloud instance) and found the possible work loggers are:

  • user account id: a6a006a92a7baxxxxx
  • ug:0ea34210-8d38-423b-a2d4xxxx
  • emial pre-fix
  • external.UserName

 

Anyone help explain why there're 4 formats of this value?

 

In addition, I found the worklog date is the worklog created date, but not the start date users specify when logging their log/time. Is it the same value for Server/Data Center? 

 

Thanks,

YY

Are you using Tempo or the built-in worklog features?

Hi Aron,

 

I don't use any apps/add-ons. I'm using the native/built-in features with exporting all the fields of the searched issues.

It seems that the built-in export feature exports user IDs for some reason. I known that Atlassian changes the format of IDs time to time, but the role of an ID is to be a unique identifier, it is not necessarily "displayable".

If I were you, I'd try our Better Excel Exporter app which exports the user display names:

It seems great. However, we don't have that addon~

You shouldn't have to pay for an add-on to get a basic function like exporting time data.... someone told me that with the on-prem system you can get it from the database directly with sql.

On cloud, you don't have access to the database, so you can't run queries. You can work with the Jira Cloud REST API to solve a use case like this -- if you are ready to write code.
