How does it work

Once Person creates an issue in project for tracking absences (Requestor) it is assumed that this absence needs to be approved by someone. It is expected that person create an issue describing type of absence and duration

This might be several step process, we do not put any restriction on this. Once workflow reaches Status defined in configuration - Absence Tracking for Jira - will add certain hours  defined in calendar for given employee, under account of Requestor
