How to add worklog type on log work screen

When loging work on an issue, we hope to add a worklog type(eg: a select list field) on the log work screen.

What is the best way to achieve this?

Use webwork module to override the existing worklog action and put custom screens or modified screens in place of the default ones.

You will also need to modify the worklog database to add the field. Jobin - is that easier to do now within a plugin?

Good point. It is easy (and better) to store it in ActiveObjects than modifying the JIRA Tables. All you need is two tables, one to store the worklog types and another to store the issueid and the typeid.

Ah, yes, that is a good thought! Kaamelot/Minyaa updated the database and that was always an installation/upgrade problem - but that was the only choice on earlier JIRA. ActiveObjects is available on 4.3 and above - see

Thank you so much.

Minyaa and Tempo support this kind of thing - see . The request to add it directly to JIRA is JRA-1780

Hi Bob,

Thanks you.

We want to develop a plugin which only archive customising worklog type, we have no plan to purchase Minyaa and Tempo.

Could you give me some clue to develope that plugin? such as which plugin module should be used?


Off hand no. Sorry.
