Update Time Spent in Issue Worklogs


Update the time spent in all the worklogs of an issue.


As an admin, I want to fix the worklogs of an issue to display the correct time spent. Using this script, I can bulk update all of the worklogs of an issue at once, saving time and reducing the risk of error.

Good to Know

  • You must execute the script as "ScriptRunner Add-On User" to override screen security.
  • You can fine-tune the worklogs to update applying extra query parameters, or extra conditions based on attributes, to the worklog search request.
