Tempo accounts/reports by issue type

Hello,

a customer currently has a problem which could not be comfortable solved by tempo timesheets, but maybe some has a different point of view to help me out.

Situation is:

  • Projects only have 2 issue types: Bug and Service
  • For each customer there are two tempo accounts refering to these issue types (as they are billed differently)

Problem is:

  • There is the possibility to choose the wrong tempo account for an issue
  • The entered information about account is redundant, as it is already identified by the issue type

Possible solutions I can think of:

  • Assign an account in tempo to an issue type and not to a project
  • Preselect an account depending on issue type
  • Include issue type in timesheet export and sort it out there

I am quite surprised to see that the issue type is not included in the report, as this would seem to be the easiest solution (filtering the report would even be better).

But maybe there is a fourth solution which I cannot see at the moment...

Any input is appreciated!

Thanks in advance
Thomas

Hi Thomas,

the issue type is included in the Excel and the XML export. If you have Tempo account as a Jira custom field you only need to choose the Account once, when you create the issue. In case this is done wrong to start with (only the accounts connected to the Issue are available) you can edit the choice within the issue. This account information can be included in the export.

Please take a look at https://tempoplugin.jira.com/wiki/display/TEMPO077/Configuring+Fields+and+Properties for more information.

Hope this helps

You could also create a post function or use issue bulk changes to keep the type and account in sync.

Thanks, I totally didnt see the issue type in the export as it was hidden somewhere in the middle.

Hi Thomas,

We are aware of this limitation and and working on solutions to it. Thanks for the feedback.

Viðar, Tempo

If you mean assigning an account to an issue type: that would be great!

Any updates on this issue?

 

Thanks.-
