I would like to know if is it possible to automatically start logging work after the user start working on an issue? And, of course, after the user stopped working on this issue, the logwork should ends automatically as well.
I had the same problem and didn't find a solution without buying the Tempo plugin - which was not option for me. I did create a "sort-of" solution using the Groovy plugin, a custom groovy script which adds 1 minute to a ticket, and finally modifying my workflows to fire the script every time a transtion going into an "in progress" state occurs.
This is not as ellegant as automatically getting the time worked on an issue; but at least allows for some data to start getting collected. My team can go back into their worklog and correct times without having to remeber what tickets they worked on. I'm sure with a little mroe hacking the Groovy script could do the calculation when leaving a Jira issue.
Also look up the Timesheet plug-in; it is a fraction of the cost of Tempo. It still will not do what you want, however with the script I mentioned above, it makes correctign time a lot easier.
If you use this technique for "automatically" logging time, make sure you put the Groovy script running Post-Action AFTER the Re-index action; otherwise the tickets are not re-indexed properly.
