Lastest version of Jira StopWatch can be downloaded here:
Just download the .MSI installer file and run it. Follow the instructions in the installer.
The first time you run Jira StopWatch, the settings dialog will automatically be shown. You can access the settings dialog at any time by clicking the gears icon in the main window's lower right corner.
As a minimum, you should type in the base URL to your Jira installation and your username and password.
If you are using a locally installed version of Jira, check with your system administrator.
If you are using Atlassian's Cloud version of Jira, your base URL is probably something like http://yourname.atlassian.net, and the username is your e-mail address.
Important note! Atlassian is migrating cloud accounts to their Atlassian ID and SSO solution. This has been known to give some connection problems when using your e-mail address as the username.
If you experience connection problems, please try this:
The first thing you want to do is to click on the filter combobox. Here you will find your default filter My open issues along with any other filters, that you have created in Jira. Filters marked as favorites will also be displayed here.
Once you have chosen a filter, you can now fill your timer rows with Jira issues by selecting them in the respective comboboxes. The issues available are determined by the filter you chose before.
You can also simply type an issue key or you can copy/paste the url from your browser. Jira StopWatch will then extract the issue key from the url and insert it.
Having chosen a couple of issues, it's time to start working.
Simply press the play button on the issue, that you start working on. The time-field turns green, and the timer has now started.
Pressing play on another timer will pause the previous active one automatically. can also simply toggle between running and pause on the same timer.
The time is reported in the same format that Jira uses, eg. 2h 34m.
When you have completed some work, or just want to log your time at the end of the day, it is time to use Jira StopWatch's worklog feature.
Click on the submit button just next to the time field. Looks like this
The Submit Worklog dialog is now displayed. Here you can write a comment about, what you have done, and also adjust the remaining estimate on the issue in the same way you would do it in Jira.
When you press submit, the worklog is sent to Jira, and you will be able to see it, if you open the issue in your browser. After the worklog is sent, the timer will automatically be reset.

Jira StopWatch has a couple of extra goodies, that can be enabled through the settings dialog. Some of them are pretty obvious, but some need a bit of explanation.
By default, when Jira StopWatch is closed all your timers will be reset. However you have two other options:
This is somewhat the same timer functionality as above, only it describes behaviour when you choose to lock your desktop (eg. if you are going for lunch break).
Jira distinguishes between the comments added as a normal part of the conversation and comments added to a worklog. They show up differently on an issue page. Here you can choose what should happen with the comment, that you write, when submitting the recorded time.
This feature enables you to change the state of an issue to "in progress" when pressing play on a timer.
You can add a number of commands here, separated by newline. The commands should equal the text on the buttons of your issue pages. Examples:
When you press play on an issue timer, StopWatch will query the issue (through the Jira API) to see if any of the above commands are currently available. If one of them are, it will be sent.
Example: You have just received a newly created task and added it to StopWatch. On the Jira page, the status is Open. You then click the play button. If you refresh the Jira page, the status will now be In progress.
