How to filter on "Time Spent" for a workflow transition condition? Edited


I am trying to incorporate a transition condition that allows the issue to move from one status to the next. In this case, I want the Time Spent field to be > 0 and <= 30 minutes. Through the process of trial and error, I've concluded that > 0 works just fine but it's the <= 30 minutes that breaks the logic.

Here is my logic currently on the transition:

transition_conditions.jpgAny idea what I'm doing wrong? Perhaps the value in minutes is stored differently than a whole number?

For the record, I created a filter that says...AND timespent = 30 and it returned the issue just fine:


Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Figured it out for future seekers of knowledge: Jira stores time spent in seconds. Thus in my requirement above to be <= 30 minutes, I had to set the value as 1,800 (30 * 60). That FINALLY worked.

I cannot, in any way or form, find "Sum of Time Spent" as a field on which to build a condition...

I've tried all available condition types ("Value field"...)



What condition type did you use, @Jared Moore  ?

@Stefan Anghel you should be looking for the "Time Spent" field as shown below. Make sure to select the one with the Epsilon prefix as shown in the image:


This field will automatically sum all time logged on your issue.

Thank you @Jared Moore .

I have already solved my issue by interacting with some other community members on this other question.

The trick is to search for the field, as the dropdown only lists a subset of fields that are available for condition building.

Ah, that makes sense now. Glad that the community was able to help you!
