As a Jira administrator, you can configure to automatically stop and start timers or stopwatches when a user logs in or out.
It works as follows.
The settings indicate:
- JQL (including sorting!).
- Fields(Timers and Stopwatches) to be stopped or started.
- Idle time in minutes.
- and other settings.
- When a user logs into Jira, a JQL issue search is performed. The first task is taken (sorting is important) in it timers and stopwatches are started on behalf of the user.
- When a user has been inactive in Jira for more than a time or logged out, JQL Issues are searched again. No more than 20 first tasks are taken from the result and timers and stopwatches are paused.
