Tag plugins

Jira plugin

For JIRA plugin to work, your site needs to have Accept remote API calls setting enabled.

To get the Jira plugin, go to Plugin manager -> More plugins and install Jira. 

Install Jira plugin

Once installed, click on Settings.

Issues from Jira will show up as tags within ManicTime. To setup a connection, you need to provide your username, password and a URL to your site within Jira if you are using Jira Server. You need to provide only URL to site, for example:

https://manictime.atlassian.net/

If you re using Jira cloud you only need to select Jira cloud and press connect.

Once you do, you can choose projects from which issues will be imported.

Issues will have the following format in ManicTime:

[project name], #[no. of issue - name of issue]

You can choose to also add closed issues.

You can leave starting tags empty. Whatever you write in Starting tags will be prepended to issue. For example you can write Work, then all issues will start with Work....

Once connection is established, Jira tags should be available in Add tag window, so you can use the issues in your tags.

Once you tag some time with Jira tags, you can transfer them back to Jira.

Tempo plugin (optional)

Tempo token is optional, if you do not use Tempo plugin in Jira just leave it empty.

By default, Jira does not provide a billable tag, so billable will not be transferred. Popular Jira plugin, Tempo, does support billable, so if you are using using Tempo plugin, ManicTime can also transfer billable.

Your access to Tempo add-on should be enabled by your Jira Administrator and when you log in to Jira with your account, you should navigate from Jira Software -> Tempo -> API Integration -> Settings, then click on "Get access token".

Enter access token in our Jira plugin.

Now when you transfer tags to Jira, billable flag should be transferred as well.

<any preceding tag you defined>, Project or Customer from QuickBooks[id]
<any preceding tag you defined>, Project or Customer from QuickBooks[id], Custom tag
<any preceding tag you defined>, Custom tag

As you can see you can define “your own” QuickBooks tags or add custom text to existing QuickBooks tags, but to use this feature you MUST set the Starting Tags field otherwise you can only use the first two formats.

You can also send tags back to QuickBooks as time activities. All you need to do, is to go to Plugins -> Activities from QuickBooks Online -> Save work.

And then a screen will pop up, where you can choose, for which days you want to send tags as time entries to QuickBooks and if you like to round time or group tags and what do you want to send as time activity’s description back to QuickBooks online.
