How i can update worklog?

Hello, How can I update jira tempo plugin information (For example : tempo billing hours or work hours) via tempo api. I found some information about it here:, but this is not enough for my problem. I can build xml string and post this string via java Apache HTTP client on my jira address :

"<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"UTF-8\"?>"

+ "<worklog_updates><worklog_update>"

+ " <worklog_id>10109</worklog_id>"

+ "<billed_hours>11</billed_hours>"

+ "<work_date>2014-04-07</work_date>"

+ "<hash_value>d9a825dc3ce575cafc8fc2f5aa8ab7db0d94f4f8</hash_value>"

+ "</worklog_update>" + "</worklog_updates>";

But this does not work for me, anyone faced with similar?

Use the REST API that Tempo exposes. You can use this REST Browser ( to find out what they are.

If I understand you right, via this plugin I can set and update fields in jira tempo plugin?

Yes. I looked at it before and the some of the REST endpoints support POST/PUT.
