Integrating two systems is a fairly complex process; change in one system must be reflected in the other. Tempo, however, allows users to easily change worklogs, whether for something as simple as a spelling correction or the modification of a date, or for more involved tasks, such as deleting a worklog.
The Tempo services are designed as a Machine-to-Machine communication and are usually not used by normal users. The services provide ALL worklogs regardless of permissions. The services should therefore be used with care and should only be open to a limited number of people/computers. JIRA administrators control access to the Tempo services with IP address filtering
This page explains in details the available functions in Tempo services API and how they can be used in your company.
Please comment on that page if something is not clear enough or you have some questions on this subject.
Worklog attributes are used to add additional information on worklogs. There are currently four types of worklog attributes in Tempo. Accounts can be selected as an worklog attribute.
All worklog attributes created in the Tempo administration are global on the JIRA instance and displayed on all worklog dialogs. Our roadmap includes a request to have an attribute on a JIRA project level and we'll respond to that later.
Worklog attributes can be edited, added and removed from the report view in Tempo by selecting Attribute from the filter list.
All reports in Tempo can be exported to Excel from the Views tab. The Excel file has two worksheets, Overview and Worklogs. Each attribute has it's own column in the worklog worksheet.
