Hiding Tempo Plugin on default issue screen

Is it possible to hide the tempo plugin section on a issue?

This is a global configuration and will affect all issues. Please have in mind that the Tempo section in an Issue only shows the hours logged by yourself, it does not display hour logged by other users.

I wanted to ask again about if and when this might be changed to be configurable by project.  We have only a few projects that want this section and the other project admins are adamant about not having tempo showing up on their projects at all.  Has this been worked on or can it be added soon?  I'd hate to have to remove the plugin completely over this.  


you can hide the Tempo section in the issue by disabling a module.

You need to go to Administration-> Add-ons, Manage Add-ons. Expand Tempo Timesheets and click the + next to the modules enabled. This opens the list of modules. Disable the "tempo-worklogs-module" and the Tempo section of the Issue will be hidden.

Kind regards

Thx Susanne!

Is there a possibility to configure it for each project or is this configuration always general?

Cheers, Joscha

I need this too. Tempo is installed for a specific team but it's affecting all users now.

Hi Susanne, do you have any info to share on this?


Thank you,


Does not seem to be possible, I get "Module cannot be modified" (Using JIRA in the cloud)

Update: We have had customers reporting that disabling the Tempo panel may cause performance degradation in some browsers.

I would like to add to this, that although it is possible to disable the entire modules via the JIRA Plugin manager, we do not recommend disabling individual Tempo modules.  We cannot guarantee that the software works as expected when one or more modules are disabled.

Kind Regards,

Do you have plans to add a setting for this so people can do this in an offical way?

We don't use Tempo and it is a default field every time we create a new project. This is a maintence issue and our administrators spend too much time removing the default field every time a project is created.


Please allow us to remove this feature globally (on JIRA Cloud)

This is resolved for me. For future people with this issue, I found the option to do this:

I've disabled Time tracking in Jira Cloud, but still see Tempo sections everywhere in stories preview and main screens :(

Create unique Permissions scheme for projects without Tempo.
Remove roles from permission "Work On Issues", this will hide the panel, but also hide "Log work" from Main Menu.

That worked until we upgraded to Tempo 9.3.  Now it shows:


No plans have been created for this issue.

and has a button called Plan Time.

Why on earth would they have Plan Time show up for a project that doesn't log time?  And no, we do not have the Tempo Planner Add-on.


Any idea?  I cannot find anything.
