Create a Tempo Worklog


Create an auto-generated Tempo worklog using the Tempo Java API.


As a project manager, I want to add a worklog automatically when a user transitions an issue out of any state. For example, in our workflow, all issues raised by customers go through a Triage state. When the triage is complete, I want to automatically log the amount of time it took us to triage the issue.
