Run a Script Routinely, like a CRON job


We are using a plug-in called "User Directory API for JIRA" to do user profile synchronization in JIRA.



The plug-in provides two REST endpoints: one that lists the available directories, and another that performs the synchronization on a specific directory.  Our goal is to run a script that will grab all directories using the first API call and iterate through the list, performing the sync on each directory through the second API call.

I believe it is possible to build the script using HTTPBuilder, but the problem is that we would like this script to be run on a regular interval (say every 30 minutes).  Having it be tied to a listener is less ideal.  Is this possible in ScriptRunner?  If not, what would the recommended approach be to accomplish this?
