How does one restrict logging time in the past?

So, Q4 2015 is over.  Executives have asked for reports describing logged time during Q4 2015 captured in JIRA.  Once these reports have been captured from JIRA, we do not want someone to go back and log time in Q4 2015.  I do not believe there is an out of the box solution for JIRA.  Is there some properties trick, or plug-in, or something to make the magic happen?

 

I've seen solutions on Answers for future time, but not past time.

There does not seem to be a way to restrict the logging of work by date.

As a member of the Accounting team, once I have captured various CapX data from FY 2015, people can continue to log work into FY 2015.  (Too bad, so sad)

You can disable "Logging Work" on certain issue statuses like "Closed" (jira.permission.work)

Reference: https://confluence.atlassian.com/jira/workflow-properties-189949.html

I do not want to restrict the logging of work on an issue. I want to restrict logging dates on work prior to January 1, 2016.

What do you mean by "restrict logging dates"? Is it different from "restrict logging work on an issue"? Specifying a date range is not available with the JIRA workflow properties :(

The values 12/31/2015, 12/30/2015, 12/29/2015, 12/28/2015, etc.

Hi,

This can also be achieved using script listener. Please find the answer @ Restrict logging of work in the past
