IS it possible that billable logged hours are deducted from Original estimate?

I have activated the Billable hours functionality in Tempo- JIRA add on.

When worked hours and billable hours are different in''Logtime'' is it possible that the billable hours are decuted from the original estimate in stead of the worked hours?

Thank you in advance.

Hi @Sohina Khoja ,

unfortunately this is not possible. Basically it is a Jira functionality and there "billed hours" from Tempo can´t be used.

Maybe you can leverage some scripting tools like Scriptrunner or Powerscripts for this purpose.


@Alexander Eck  Thanks for the revert. We use the Scriptrunner. If you already know or came across the solution through scriptrunner then let me know.

Once again thank you.


you could create an event listener on the Tempo worklog event and then adjust the remaining estimate on the issue that the worklog was logged against.

1. Get the worklog ID and the Jira issue ID from the event listener

2. Check if billed hours <> logged hours (from Tempo REST API)

3. iI billed hours <> logged hours adjust the remaining estimate accordingly. Remaining estimate = Remaining estimate - (logged hours - billed hours)

Something like this. Hope that helps.

But changing it manually is a big Task. Some automaic solution will be preferable. :)
