Time Tracking - recording Development and Testing Time


We would like to estimate and log both development and testing time individually in each jira issue. We have looked into the plugin 'tempo-timesheets' but this doesnt seem to be possible, can anyone suggest another way to do this?

Many thanks

Hi Matt,

This is possible with Minyaa plugin for JIRA, please see http://www.minyaa.com/documentation/latest/Features/ModuleTime/WorklogDetails/WorklogTypes.html

Thank you.

Hi Andriy, looks like minyaa isnt compatible with JIRA v6.2.

Hi Matt,

Why not create sub-tasks for each?


I cant add the dev and test as sub-tasks as they are tasks that moves through the workflow which gets passed to the dev and testing teams, so its just one task


You could probably also use Tempo's "worklog attributes" for each "worklog type". See here for details: https://tempoplugin.jira.com/wiki/display/TEMPO/Configuring+Worklog+Attributes


Hi Bjarni,

I have now downloaded the tempo timesheet plugin but I cant see how you would add, the following on each jira issue

"Original Estimate for Dev"
"Original Estimate for testing"
"remaining estimate for Dev"
"Remaining extimate for testing"
"Logged time for Dev"
"Logged time for testing" .

Is something like this possible?

Hi Matt

It is not possible to split Original Estimate and Remaining estimate on an issue. If you created worklog attribute as suggested earlier you can generate an issue report in Tempo Timesheets and pivot according to the attributes (dev, test, design etc)

Original Estimate and Remaining estimate is always an an Issue level.
