How to get list of time spent grouped by worklog comment

I need to view the list of time spent group by worklog comment for analysis purpose. I could not find a way to achieve the same using jql or a plugin.


Could anyone please guide me on the same?

Hi @monilsyx 

Do you want to do this for one issue or all issues in a project?

You can use "Get Issue" REST API


Example worklog in the response:


"worklog": [
        "self": "",
        "author": {
          "self": "",
          "accountId": "5b10a2844c20165700ede21g",
          "displayName": "Mia Krystof",
          "active": false
        "updateAuthor": {
          "self": "",
          "accountId": "5b10a2844c20165700ede21g",
          "displayName": "Mia Krystof",
          "active": false
        "comment": {
          "type": "doc",
          "version": 1,
          "content": [
              "type": "paragraph",
              "content": [
                  "type": "text",
                  "text": "I did some work here."
        "updated": "2020-01-06T09:04:05.688+0000",
        "visibility": {
          "type": "group",
          "value": "jira-developers"
        "started": "2020-01-06T09:04:05.688+0000",
        "timeSpent": "3h 20m",
        "timeSpentSeconds": 12000,
        "id": "100028",
        "issueId": "10002"

@Lenin Raj Rajasekaran , I need to do it for all issues in multiple projects. The common thing between them is issue type.

Yes I can do scripting like you suggested above to parse required data from response but I would rather prefer using a functional methodology using in-built jira functionality or existing plugin if you are aware about.


I really appreciate your efforts. Let me know if you know any alternative methodology doing the same.
