Next Gen link with Tempo accounts

I am trying to work out how to add the fields I need for tempo into the issues in a next gen board.  I can see I can add text fields/ drop downs etc but how do I get them to link to tempo for our time tracking and reporting

In classic the Account field is one I can add in easily.

Hi @Laura Phillips,

I do not think it is possible yet for the custom Tempo fields to be visible. I would select the Feedback button in the Next-Gen project to let Atlassian know about this limitation.

Currently, you have to go into the Next gen project's Settings > Apps > Accounts, add the accounts you want your users to have access to in the project and when time is logged the account will be selectable. You can also select a default account for work-logs to automatically attribute themselves to. 

Hope this helps

Thank you @[deleted] 

It looks like I will need to wait until they have developed this before I can use it then.

Good to know.

Hi @[deleted], I have associated the account to the the project, I set the account as the default account for the project. I does not seem possible to choose the account when logging time.

the same problem....

Hi @Jean-Michel Lavarenne and @Kirik Vitaliy


When an Account has been linked with the project you can add it to the issues in the next-gen projects by bulk editing the issues ( even if the Account will not show in the Issue directly). All worklogs made on this issue will then be linked to this Account.

To have a selection of Accounts ( so you can overwrite the set Account or if no Account is set), you need to create a work attribute of type Account ( 
You have then an additional field in the Log work dialog that allows you to select any of the Accounts that have been linked to the next-gen project

Hi @Susanne Götz

adding Tempo Accounts to Issues via bulk editing the issues is not a very satisfying workaround. Are there any plans to integrate JIRA next-gen projects and Tempo Timesheets in the near future?

Hi @Sebastian Esch ,

We are in contact with Atlassian about this, but I do not yet have any information when ( and if) the option to add third party custom fields will be added to the Next Gen Projects.


@Susanne Götz   Any updates on this?

Hi @Justin Couto


We still don't have any news regarding this feature.


Best regards,


Tempo Support
