How can I track time spent on an issue through the Search function?

Hi there,

I want to run the following search:

a) for an Issue Type 'Unplanned work'

b) with 'Dev Team' selected in the 'Team' custom field;

c) with 'Estimate Overrun' selected in the 'Reason' custom field.

d) over a time period, e.g. the last month, or the last week etc.


Ordinarily I would just do this through the search function by selecting the relevant fields, but there doesn't seem to be one for Time Spent / Work Logged or whatever the field is.

Also JQL doesn't seem to cover this. I do have all the Tempo plugins, so if this is covered that would also be great.

Thankssss in advance!

Unfortunately you cannot search for issues based on time spent on issues. 

What I recommend doing is saving your filter and use it in the Advanced Timesheet to see all worklogs that fit in your filter.
