Adding the Account Field to the Jira Issue View

Adding the account field to the Jira issue view requires the Jira Administrator permission.

The Tempo Account custom field is installed automatically with Tempo Accounts. To make use of the field in relation to the Tempo Products, it needs to be associated in one of the following two ways:

  • On a Jira Issue level, which requires adding association with issue screens (see below).

  • To Tempo Timesheets worklogs, which requires to add Account as a Worklog Attribute and the field will appear in the Log Time dialog box.

The field is in both cases a drop-down showing accounts linked to the project, which the Jira issue belongs to. Jira project(s) are linked to an account, when it is createdimported, or when it is being configured.

To add the account field to the Jira issue view:

  1. Click Jira settings :settings_dc:  to the top-right, and select Issues.

  2. Under Fields in the sidebar, select Custom Fields.  

  3. Go to Account, shown with the Tempo Accounts Custom Field type. Click Settings :settings_dc: to the right, and then select Screens from the dropdown.

  4. Select one or more screens where you would like to associate the field (such as the Create Issue Default Screen, Resolve Issue Screen, or Workflow Screen).

  5. Click Update to save.


You can make the Account custom field required in Jira by editing the field configurations that apply to the appropriate screen.
