How do I create a application for filling timesheets in jira?

Will the sdk from atlassian allows to develop a standalone application / chrome plugin / some other app to fill timesheet in JIRA (Cloud Hosted at

If yes, please share the links / tutorials. I'm unaware of atlassian sdk.

I'm expecting the flow as below

  • User logs into MyApp with JIRA Credentials
  • MyApp Lists the list of Projects
  • User Selects one project among it
  • MyApp Lists the list of Tasks
  • User Selects one task among it
  • After some time MyApp will logs the hours (on some basis) for the selected task

Ok, start with the basics - will guide you through creating a basic "Connect" application (Cloud only supports Connect add-ons, so where ever you read stuff about developing for JIRA, check that you're reading Connect development docs)

(Personally, I'd just use JIRA to do the timesheet entry as I'd log in as me, find my task and enter my hours, but that's just me wondering why you think you need another application to do it.)
