We want to track the time on the sub-tasks of tasks and not track time on the task itself. People continuously accidentally track time on the task. When they track it on the main task, we cant' track how long each of the sub-tasks takes and we need those numbers. Can I disable time tracking on tasks so they won't keep making this mistake?
So, the real issue with your request is that Permissions are set Per Project but you're desiring to set it per issue type. This is NOT possible!
But, we can have an alternative path. We know we have Workflow Properties, which let you modify permissions-per-state. You should be able to use Workflow Properties in JIRA Cloud. A property exists that lets you enable or disable Log Work permissions, so feasibly you can use a different workflow on the SubTask issue type, which allows Time Logging. And a different workflow on the Task issue type, which doesn't allow Time Logging on any status ever.
I am _so_ very glad to hear that! I encourage you to heavily test this from different Roles within your project because for one to misconfigure it plus it is buried deep within the workflow. However, these properties were introduced to fill the gap you've found, more granular permissions. Good luck! :) Steve
I actually have the same question. But I was wondering whether another approach is possible:
I also want my team to use time tracking on the sub tasks only. So I decided to hide time tracking from the parent task. However I then had the problem, that I could not see the time tracking details in the parent task detail view (the 3 coloured time bars).
Is there a way to hide time tracking from the parent issue but still see the progress somewhere as an aggregate of all sub tasks together?
Or is settng properties the only viable option?
