Cron Expression in Automation Rule

Good morning.

I have an automation rule that includes the following cron expressions and although I've read the documentation,  Construct cron expressions for a filter subscription | Jira Software Cloud | Atlassian Support I am not sure how to read it.  All I got from 0 0 6 1/1 * ? * is 6:00 am.Cron Expression.png

Hi @Nicole Gosling,


What is the end result you are looking for? The expression is saying run everyday at 6:00 AM regardless of month or year.




0 0  6  1/1 * ? *
| |  |   |  | | | 
| |  |   |  | | +-- Year              (range: 1970-2099)   *= All years
| |  |   |  | +---- Day of the Week   (range: 1-7 SUN-SAT) ?= No specific month
| |  |   |  +------ Month of the Year (range: 0-11 JAN-DEC)*= All months
| |  |   +--------- Day of the Month  (range: 1-31)        1/1 = run everyday
| |  +------------- Hour              (range: 0-23)
| +---------------- Minute            (range: 0-59)
+------------------ Second            (range: 0-59)

@Tim Perrault thanks.  I am a new Jira Administrator taking over for someone who left the company.  You answered my question perfectly.  I don't want to change it I just didn't know how to read the expression.

I will continue my learning :D

Hi Guys,

May know the details of this : 0 0 0/1 1/1 * ? *

I think this means rule will run - Starting 1st Jan Midnight, it will run every one hour for all days, all months and all years.

Hi Nicole,

If you click on the CRON Expressions documentation link in page, it will help guide you and describe the individual items. 

@John Funk thanks!  I did review the documentation however it didn't make sense to me.  Sorry I am new to Jira so a little green right now :)  I see @Tim Perrault provided a response. Thanks!

No worries -  I am glad Tim was able to provide a more detailed response.  :-)

Hi @Nicole Gosling 

Try with this for everyday at 6 AM

0 0 6 ? * *

Let me know if this works or let me know at what time you need to run the automation



@Pramodh M thanks for getting back to me so quickly.  Sorry for the confusion, I don't want to change the cron expression I just don't know how to read it.

What does 0 0 6 1/1 * ? * mean.



@Pramodh M no need to respond as @Tim Perrault answered my questions.  Thanks for your help!

Pramodh M Community Leader Jan 20, 2022

Yeah Got it @Nicole Gosling 

Starting from 1st day for every month for every day at 6 AM

Pramodh M Community Leader Jan 20, 2022

Sorry I didn't see anyways 😃

Pramodh M Community Leader Jan 20, 2022

I was doing my own research in my mobile and answered it @Nicole Gosling 

Hi Guys, 

I found the solution for this every day and every 5min the filter trigger 


Thank you
