Can you link Tempo accounts to Epics?

When using Tempo and setting up accounts in Account Manager I see you can link accounts to projects (many to many relationship), and configure worklog attributes to link accounts to work logs (specifically not linked to the issue), but is there a way to link an account to an Epic or Issue?

If I have a single project then the epics / stories within that project may be billable to multiple budget lines depending on the end user or things like capitalization... it's not possible to use work log attributes as developers will not know what account the issue/story should be billed to.

Hi Tom,

it is not possible to link an Account directly to an Epic but you can set an Account that is linked to the Project to the Epic. 

Create the Accounts you need and link them to the Project. Then set the correct Account to each Epic. You can have different Accounts set on Epics and Issues linked to the Epic. With this setting, you need to reconsider if you also need to use the Account worklog attribute.

Hope this helps
