JIRA 5, do worklogs have to be enabled for OAUTH worklog updates

I am looking to update JIRA 5 issue worklogs exclusively via the REST API (OAuth).

Is it possible to update the worklogs for a project issue via OAUTH without the user being able to update worklogs through JIRA on the front end?

I would like our time-tracking application to supply the worklogs (using the user's OAuth access token) without the user being able to update worklogs manually in JIRA.

Thanks in advance!

REST respects all the permissions in the UI.

If you are using a user who cannot update worklogs, then... they cannot update worklogs. Doesn't matter if it's in the UI, REST, SOAP, etc.

You'll either need to do a bit of coding in Jira to allow some form of bypass that only works over REST, or log the work as a different user
