Group tempo reports by custom field


I created a custom field in the work log screen with Tempo to add the work type (development, testing, documentation, etc.)

I would like to get a Tempo report of the timesheets of my team grouping their whole time by that custom field for the work type they submitted instead of grouping it by issue.

Would it be possible?

Hey guys :)

I've followed to discussion and your needs are exactly the cause why we developed our own app for reporting. Would you mind testing our app Exply for JIRA ( that is specially made for reporting/controlling of JIRA and Tempo data?

I would love to hear your feedback and maybe you could join us as additional "friendly customers" to develop Exply further with real-world input :) Just send me a PM or email to

Hope to hear from you soon!

Hi, thanks for your reply.

Unfortunately, it seems your solution is only available for Jira Server, while we are using the Cloud version.

Hi @Jesus Perez Rey

ah ok, haven't found, that you're using JIRA Cloud. We're planning to release it for JIRA Cloud as well. But this could take some time to realize.

We're also providing Exply as a Self-Hosted Version ( for other data than JIRA & Tempo (e.g. marketing, sales pr ERP data). Would love to hear your feedback :)

sunny regards

Hi @Jesus Perez Rey


you can try the following app for Jira Cloud: Worklogs - Time Reports for Jira


It should meet your requirements out-of-the box.

Thank you all for your suggestions.

We have finally decided to go without these reports for now. We may try your suggestions at a later stage.

Hi Jesus - 

Welcome to the Community! 

If you do a Custom Report -> Group by Work Log -> List View you should be able to select that field to display. However, if you want to create any metrics on this (or any other field), I've found that I have better luck exporting to excel and creating my own pivot tables. 



Hi Jan, thanks for your reply.

That allowed me to do some progress indeed, but the report still shows one row for each time entry, while what I wanted was the sum of all the time entries for each work type:


I could indeed export it to an Excel spreadsheet and do the sum there, but I would like a more direct way to get it straight from Jira reports because top managers won't want to bother about writing Excel formulas 🤷🏻‍♂️

Jesus - I concur. We struggle DAILY to provide meaningful reports to management.  

@Sandstorm Media GmbH , will your "Exply Dashboards, Charts & Reports" add in for Jira Server let me group by Tempo Role?

@Pete P Sorry for taking so long! 


Yes, it will let you group any values by Tempo Role (or any other work log attribute/custom field) :)
