Jira users can log work on issues under some conditions:

It’s a common question on Atlassian forum. The most popular two you can find here and here.
On the Atlassian Marketplace you can find app Feature Bundle app. It has an option to enable log work by collaborators. Make sure that collaborators has BROWSE PROJECT and LOG WORK permission on the Jira project as the app respect those permissions.
Then select the issue you want to log time on and go to More > Log Work.
Fill in the fields, and select Log.
