Can I associate a Tempo worklog attribute to an issue custom field?


I need to define an issue custom field called "Activity Type", which is given a value when creating the issue. Users will need to be able to overwrite this when logging work. Is this possible in Tempo?

Hi Vahid

I don't know if JIRA supplies a REST API to get customfield-values for an issue, but if they do, you should be able to create some functionality as you describe. This would require using the SCRIPT worklog-attribute. Tempo unfortunately doesn't offer any support on writing such scripts.



Thanks Susanne.

Hi Vahid,

this is only possible for Accounts. When you have Tempo Account as a custom field, the worklog can get connected to a different account with the Account worklog attribute in Tempo. You can connect worklog attributes to your worklog, but they do not overwrite the custom field in JIRA.

Best regards,

Susanne (Tempo)

Thanks Susanne,

I am basically looking for something with similar functionality but for a different purpose. The idea is for the worklogs to inherit the issue's custom filed value unless specified otherwise when logging work.

Can I create a "select list" custom field and a worklog attribute, ideally with the same name, and use a script to grab the custom field's value for the issue as the default value for the worklog attribute?
