JIRA Time Tracking

TMetric is a free work time tracking web app for professionals and companies. It integrates with JIRA and other widely used project management systems. Use TMetric to track time spent on tasks directly from JIRA.

Below is the instructions on how to integrate TMetric with JIRA. 

Preparing to track your work time in Jira

Let's setup TMetric so it can correctly capture your work time from Jira. 

1. Create TMetric account. It will take a few minutes.

2. Install one of the following TMetric browser extensions depending on a browser you prefer: 

3. (optional) After registration, you can also install a time tracking desktop app, so you could track your work activity in details.

Now when you are all set, you can proceed to track work time in Jira. 

Tracking time in Jira. How it works

The screenshot below demonstrates the Jira issue details and the TMetric Start timer button.


Click the button, and TMetric will start recording your Jira working time. Notice that the Start timer button changes to the Stop timer button and displays the time spent on the issue.

If you have the status of Owner or Admin when first starting the timer for the issue, TMetric pulls out from Jira the project name of the issue and automatically creates a project with the same name in your TMetric account.     

The issue appears on the Tracker page in the TMetric web app. See how it looks on the screenshot below.

Time entry Jira

As you can see, the name, ID, and project of the issue is the same as in Jira. It is easy enough to navigate back to Jira by clicking the issue ID (in our case ID is ACE-527).
