Is there a way in Tempo Timsheets to divide a worklog between several accounts, so that some hours got to account A and others go to account B?

We need to be able to register work logs at the project level and and distribute them among different accounts. I think timesheets doesn't have this functionality, but could this be achieved by a custom plugin? Does tempo exposes de apis to create work logs, so we can programmatically do the distibution.

I believe Tempo piggy backs off of the JIRA worklogs and you can access the data through the JIRA API's


Hi @Jose Paredes,

All hours are logged on the Issue level in Timesheets (and JIRA). There are features in Timesheets that will allow you to distribute worklogs between accounts (Tempo Accounts) in a way, but maybe not exactly like you have described.

It's not possible to generate worklogs through the API, only fetch them. Many companies use the APIs to get worklogs and "move" them into external accounting systems.

I hope this helps.

Hi @Jose Paredes

If you are asking if a specific worklog can be assigned to an account, this can be done by configuring accounts as worklog attributes. For more information please see:

Currently it is not possible to split a worklog between accounts unless creating two separate worklogs, one for each account and manually dividing the hours. However, it would be interesting to consider the specifics of your use case. Can you please create a new feature request on this at:

Product Owners review all such requests and if they are within the scope of the roadmap they are transitioned from the Needs Triage status.

Best regards,




Did you find a resolution for this? We are trying to do the same thing.
