Tempo Timesheets is an alternative time tracking solution for Jira. It’s really powerful and has a lot cool features. But sometimes it looks a bit too complex to start working with, so some users prefer to add Worklogs Report as a quick and simple way to report on spent time.
Tempo has a lot of extra data on top of logged hours, such as Accounts, Teams and other stuff. This data is securely stored outside your Jira instance, and no other 3rd party can access it without your permission. To provide Pivot Report access to the Tempo data, you need to grant the access via OAuth 2.0.
IMPORTANT! If you are using Jira Server and Tempo Timesheets, you are all set out of the box. It just works.
Pivot Report can show following Tempo data in the reports:
Start with opening Tempo Integration settings in Jira Settings > Apps > Pivot Report > Tempo Integration
To be honest, no more info is needed after you get there. Because the tutorial is already there. But in case you haven’t installed the app, let’s go over 5 easy steps to make the integration happen.
In the new tab open Tempo Settings > Developer Tools Section > OAuth 2.0 Applications
Enter details as follows:
Name: Pivot Report Integration
Redirect URIs: https://pr.colined.app/api/1/tempo/auth/COPY_URI_FROM_YOUR_SETTINGS

You can always revoke the access by either clicking on Turn off button in the Worklogs Report settings or by deleting OAuth 2.0 access data in the Tempo settings.
