Create new ticket after 60 days as a result of closing another ticket


I am looking at an automated process where a new ticket is created after a period of 60 days once an initial ticket is closed.

We have an automated process where one of our systems emails JSD and a ticket is auto created. The Subject is "Always the same subject" and we action the ticket and close. I want to create a new ticket 60 days after the initial ticket is closed so my Helpdesk can perform further tasks. I would like for the new ticket to have a different Subject and in the description, a link or reference to the initial one. Both tickets are in the same project and accessed by the same agents.


I had a look in JSD Automation but I must admit, could not work it out.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hi @Theo Tzanis

Create a new sla that starts counting once the ticket goes into closed status. Then you use jira automation to create a new ticket when the slave is breached and link them together.

You can use this video tutorial as a reference:

Instead of sending an email, you would create a new ticket.

I hope this helps.

Hi Fabian, Thank you for the prompt reply, i followed your recommendation and watched the video and now I get notifications from all tickets that close.

Under SLA's I used "Time to close after resolution" and added a SLA for 5 mins and JQL with me as the reporter and Summary "xx  xx  xx" and placed it above the default and the 24h we have to so tickets get closed after they are resolved, 

I also created Automation, using the "SLA threshold breach" and instead of creating a new ticket, I used the Email option to send emails to myself and if this works, I can change to Create Issue,

What happens now is I get emails for all closed tickets, and not the ones I explicitly added in the JQL.  Tickets that are created by myself and have Summary ~ "xxxxxxx" as shown in attached image, PS: I created new tickets as myself and used the same Summary as in the JQL and  closed the tickets, 


Thank you for your help,
