How to schedule issue for every 90 days?

Is it possible to create a scheduled issue that executes every 90 days? I know how to specify the months explicitly (e.g. `0 0 0 1 Jan,Apr,Jul,Oct ?`), but with this approach it could be more or less than 90 days before the next execution depending on the months.

Hello @vn01971 

Welcome to the community.

With the Schedule trigger you can set a fixed rate for the schedule.

Hi @Trudy Claspill, thanks for the quick reply. I'm seeing a different scheduled issue wizard. Is this a different feature than the schedule trigger?

Hi, It comes from a third-party app, I can't remember from which exactly. I guess you should click on the Advanced tab to provide a CRON expression. 

If you need an easy-to-use the scheduled template feature, I'd recommend testing the Scheduled Templates app. It's super-easy.

I am using the Automation for JIRA feature which is free in the JIRA Cloud Standard plan. You can access it through Project Settings. Here's a link to the home page for the documentation of the feature.

@Tom Jones _Appsvio_ do you know what the appropriate CRON expression would be for every 90 days?

Cron expression for every 90 days:

0 5 */90 * *

@Trudy Claspill I've messed around with that for a while but can't get the schedule issue wizard to accept it. For some reason the schedule wizard thinks the frequency is more than once per hour. Any ideas?

It looks like you are using a third party app for this. Which one is it?

We don't have any extra apps for scheduling issue creation, so I won't be able to experiment to find a proven solution for your third party app. But if I know which one it is maybe I can figure it out from that vendor's documentation.

@Trudy Claspill 
Ah I didn't realize we were using third party app, but turns out we're using The Scheduler
Sadly, I didn't see anything in their docs about scheduling a task for every X days.


Automation for JIRA is included in the Standard plan for JIRA Cloud. You might consider using it for the creation of issues that needs to happen per X days. 

Hi Guys,

In our Scheuler you can just use interval triggers instead of the cron expressions. Here is example form the Cloud version of the app

Then you just simply use 90 days interval:
