Changing default "Time Tracking Hours per Day"

Is it possible to change the "Time Tracking Hours per Day" from the Default 8hrs to 7hrs 30min?

I am just in the process of evaluating Jira & Jira Agile, but i've notice that the standard working time is set to 8hrs, but we work on a 7.5hr day. I'm logged in as the system admin but can not find a way to edit this.

It's under Admin -> Timetracking.

Be warned that your existing data will look a bit odd. Where your users have logged say "1 day", you'll start seeing "1day and a bit" because the old data won't be adjusted.

Is it possible to set this at a project level? We have different projects with different working hours.

Nope, it's still a global setting


Hi Nic Brough,

Please confirm it is possible through script like Adaptavist script runner plugin in jira to edit the time tracking settings for single project instead of minutes to hours


please suggest/share  the script to fix it
