JRACLOUD-47735 - Getting issue details... STATUS


Users who are using worklog attributes and the validation settings in Tempo sometimes want to disable the log work module in JIRA to force the usage of the Tempo validation. These steps are tested in JIRA version 8.20.10.


  1. Log in as a JIRA administrator, and select Administration > Manage apps
  2. Select System in the drop down
  3. In "Filter visible apps" search for Issue Operations Plugin, click on Modules, then disable the Ops Bar Work Link (log-work) module.

  4. Then again search or filter for Issue Tab Panels Plugin and click on Modules, then disable the Work Log Tab Panel (worklog-tab panel) module.

  5. The JIRA Log Work button is now removed on your Issue screen under the More button

    (info) If disabling the "+" button (on the issue view screen at the estimate time section) is needed, locate View Issue Panels click on Modules, then disable the webfragments.view.issue.timetracking.create.worklog module.
