Hi guys,

We have fixed the problem. Version is available on the Marketplace.

Sorry for the inconvenience,


Yeah, all sorted.

Thanks for the rapid fix and release.

That's fixed it for us. Thanks very *very* much for the quick resposne :-)

Hi Matthew.

We haven't heard about this issue. You should be able to check why you cannot log work for the user by filling in the Worklog validation form in Tempo Administration.


Please enter the date, username of the user you want to log work, and your own username, and finally the issue-key.

Please let us know if this doesn't help you to clear this up.


We're experiencing the same issue. This only started happening after updating to the new version of Tempo today - no permissions have changed. I can also note that through the worklog date validation page, everything is passing fine.

As a developer, I've debugged the following notes:
* when entering time in the worked field, a request is submitted to /rest/tempo-rest/1.0/worklogs/remainingEstimate/calculate/ which is 404'ing, and this causes an alert('error') popup to display
* following is the request and response when clicking the Add button on the Log Work dialog (some detail omitted for security and brevity)

POST /rest/tempo-rest/1.0/worklogs/*snip*-214 HTTP/1.1
Host: jira.*snip*
Referer: http://jira.*snip*/secure/TempoUserBoard!timesheet.jspa

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?><submit-result valid="false"><errors><formFieldId>issue</formFieldId><errorMessage>You do not have permission to add worklog on this issue</errorMessage></errors></submit-result>

Let me know if you need any other detail, or if there's a better place to send this info to.


Hi Nick and thanks for the info,

You are getting: "You do not have permission to add worklog on this issue" error.

Are you logging time for yourself or sombody else? Do you get the error on all issues or just some?

Thanks for the reply Bjarni.

Users are logging time for themselves, this is happening across all issues, and is affecting all our users with both standard and administrative privileges.

This is the same for us too..
