Reduce work log time

In OnDemand Version of Jira:

How can a user reduce "logged work" if the user entered to much time (by accident)?

As fas as I see the Default Permission Scheme allows already:

"Delete Own Worklogs (Ability to delete own worklogs made on issues.) Project Role (Users)"

Here I found the instruction how this should work in theory:

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA040/Logging+Work+on+an+Issue

--> But the described "work log" tab allows me still to add additional work time only.

How can the user reduce entered work log time?

See the Edit Own Worklogs permission. If the user has that permission, he can go to worklog tab in the "View Issue" page and edit the worklog.

The "Default Permission Scheme" has this status:

Edit Own Worklogs (Ability to edit own worklogs made on issues.) Project Role (Users)

--> So I would assume that all users (or higher: developers or even Admins like me) do have the right?

I guess my initial problem is - I have no clue where to point the user (or even myself) to look at to edit worklogs.

The pic below shows where we do enter "done" work. But where do we have to look to "edit" or "delete" it?

There seems to be two options:

  1. delete the log and add a new log with the correct time. or
  2. modify the remaining estimate by adding time to it.

There doesn't seem to be an option to change the time spent field.
