Hello @Balabay

Thank you for reaching out.

You can schedule an automation rule with a cron expression to properly create an issue and send a notification every 5th day of the months you want. These would be the steps:

  1. Navigate to the project where the issue should be created > Project settings Automation
  2. Click to create an automation, using the following cron expression:
    0 0 0 5 JAN,APR,JUL,OCT ?

This would be the rule background:

  1. When: scheduled with the cron expression (0 0 0 5 JAN,APR,JUL,OCT ?)
  2. Action: Create a new issue
  3. Second action: Send a notification to the email you want

Let us know if you have any questions.

So, you can set a scheduler to create an issue every 3 month
