How to add Time Tracking feature to a non-story issue type?




You can add the ability to log work and/or specify/change time estimates to a screen by adding the special Log Work and/or Time Tracking fields respectively.


  • If you cannot find these fields in the Add Field selection box and they have not already been added to the screen, check whether JIRA's Time Tracking feature has been enabled. These fields will not be available to add to any screen if Time Tracking is disabled.

  • If any screens have the Log Work or Time Tracking fields and JIRA's Time Tracking feature is subsequently deactivated, those screens will keep these fields until you specifically remove them. However, until you reactivate Time Tracking, the fields will not be visible to the user.
