Delete all worklogs for user (Tempo)

I would like to delete all worklogs for a particular user, but the only way I can think of is deleting records from the database, which is a bit risky since I don't have a full understanding of all Tempo tables. Basically, I could delete all records for that user in table 'worklog' but there are other tables involved such as 'propertyentry' or 'propertystring'. If I knew all of them I could come up with a proper query.

Does anyone have another idea or the right SQL statement to run?

Hi Sergio

All the worklogs are in the "worklog" table in the JIRA database. You would need to execute an SQL to delete all the records in bulk. We do not recommend that you do so but you can at your own risk.

This SQL will show you all the worklogs a certain user has after 4-Jul-2013:

select * 
  from worklog
  where author = 'john'
    and startdate > '2013-07-04'
  order by startdate 
Hope this helps

That doesn't answer to my question. I already knew that so I was asking about other tables involved (for example, the ones that store worklog attributes.
