Can i use tempo with automation for jira in sync?


I want to use a automation for time tracking. I'm using Tempo for time tracking but it takes time for start tracker for all tasks im working on it. I'm using Automation for jira. Is there any way to set an automation for when im transitioned an issue to "In Progress", this trigger tempo time tracker.

you should be able to log work through a web request.

Hey Necati, 

thanks for your message. 

Unfortunately, logging work (via tempo) isn't yet possible with Automation for Jira. We are tracking an improvement for it here:

You can log work directly with Jira:

You can also integrate with Tempo in some ways as per this blog:

But automatically logging work via tempo is still in the backlog. 



Hi John,

Has there been any update on this?

I'm afraid not yet Michael, will update if there are any changes. 

Hey @John McKiernan

the third link is broken – do you have another source for this article?

Thank you!

Hey @Marvin Brand ,

Yes unfortunately we had to remove the blog as the information was becoming outdated and was no longer managed by Atlassian. 

The best I can offer is a snapshot of the blog from the archives. Imperfect but hopefully will help.




Thank you @John McKiernan for your effort!

All the best,
