Update 6 May 2016
As of May 6, the JIRA Timesheet Reports and Gadgets plugin has been removed from JIRA Cloud. We apologize for the delay between our previously announced removal date and the actual removal.
We are aware of performance and scaling issues with the Time Reports for JIRA add-on that has been developed as a replacement. If you run in to problems, here are some alternative options for JIRA Cloud that offer similar functionality for reporting and displaying time tracking data:

This article applies only to the JIRA Timesheet Reports and Gadgets add-on bundled in JIRA Cloud.
On 31 March 2016, the JIRA Timesheet Reports and Gadgets add-on, which was currently offered as part of JIRA Software Cloud and JIRA Core Cloud, will no longer be available. Existing gadgets provided by this plugin will no longer load and reports will no longer be available.
Why is Atlassian doing this?
We currently bundle several JIRA add-ons developed by third-party partners with our JIRA Cloud offerings to extend the capabilities available to our JIRA Cloud customers. However, in order to improve the stability, performance, and security of our JIRA Cloud offerings, Atlassian is working with these partners to remove the existing add-ons as they migrate to our new scalable add-on platform, Atlassian Connect.
What will happen on 22 February?
The existing JIRA Timesheet Reports and Gadgets add-on will be removed from all JIRA Cloud instances. The add-on currently provides the following features.
- Time Sheet Gadget
- Project Pivot Gadget
- Worked Time Chart
- Time Sheet Report
- Project Pivot Report
- JQL functions
- workedIssues(fromDate, toDate, userOrGroup)
- REST resources
I'm currently using one of these features in my JIRA instance. What do I do?
The developer of the original add-on, Andriy Zhdanov, has built a new add-on for JIRA Cloud offering an updated set of functionality called Time Reports and Gadgets for JIRA Cloud. It's designed specifically for JIRA Cloud. You can add it to your instance from the Atlassian Marketplace or by going to the Find New Add-ons page within JIRA Administration in your instance.
Time Reports for JIRA includes the following features as both reports and dashboard gadgets:
- Timesheet - time spent on issues by days
- Pivot Report by Users - time spent on issues by users
- Pivot Report by Status - time spent on issue in certain status
- Time Tracking - estimated vs actual
- Pie Chart - time spent chart
We are working hard to enable add-on developers to offer as many equivalent features as possible in the new versions of their add-ons. However, if you require a feature only present in JIRA Timesheet Reports and Gadgets, you can migrate to JIRA Server and purchase the Server version of JIRA Timesheet Reports and Gadgets.
I purchased a license to enable additional features for JIRA Timesheet Reports and Gadgets in JIRA Cloud. What do I do?
