Delete a timesheet entry what permission do you need?


What permission do you need to delete your own time entry using the "x"?  It's tell the end user you need to be an adminstrator to delete the time entry.  Is that true?  Or is there a setting I need to do?

This should be configurable in the permission scheme. Go to admin -> Issues -> Permission Schemes, then find the scheme you want to edit. There should be the following options for time tracking permissions:

  • Delete All Worklogs
  • Delete Own Worklogs - this should be the one you need
  • Edit All Worklogs
  • Edit Own Worklogs
  • Work On Issues

In our case, we have the Delete/Edit All Worklogs permission reserved for administrators, while the "own worklogs" permissions are given to individual users on a project.
