In this version we're introducing a completely new UI for creating work attributes (learn more about work attributes here). A new type of work attribute is now available: the static list. This is a simple drop-down list that allows you to define the list items in Tempo Timesheets. Furthermore, we are removing the Script type work attribute. To learn more about how this might affect your setup, check out the Removing the script type work attribute section below.  

All changes, improvements, and fixes in Tempo Timesheets 8.2 are listed below.

Removing script type work attribute

In Timesheets 8.2 we're removing the script work attribute type. If you are not using this feature, this will not affect your Tempo setup, and you don't have to read further. This feature removal will also not affect dynamic drop-down lists, which get information from a REST service.

What is changing?

After considerable effort and investigation, we have decided to remove the scripted worklog attribute type from Tempo Timesheets. This feature presented some security concerns, as it allowed for code which may, intentionally or not, corrupt data and open your company's JIRA environment to other risks. We recognize this may be inconvenient. However, we want to continue to build enterprise-grade software for our customers, and security is one of their (and our) top priority. This change helps us to ensure that Tempo Timesheets meets requirements for industry-standard compliance frameworks.

If you're searching for an alternative, Atlassian Marketplace offers resource plugins for injecting javascript code into JIRA. Our Atlassian Expert Partners also have vast knowledge available regarding JIRA and can provide consulting services.

Tempo Timesheets 8.2.0 Compatibility

This release of Tempo Timesheets is compatible with JIRA 6.4.12+. This compatibility is a change from previous releases which were compatible with JIRA 6.2+.  The reason for the jump to 6.4.12 instead of to 6.4.0 is a JIRA Agile plugin point bug that was fixed in 6.4.12.

  • JIRA 6.4.12 to JIRA 7.2.x
