Automatically create new issues on a schedule

We have a user who wants to automatically create new issues on the xth of each month/quarter/year for his team on certain projects. Has anyone tried doing this in the OnDemand instance?

I see there's a plugin that allows you to automatically create issues based on a certain date, but unless I'm mistaken, that's only available for locally hosted set-ups.

You can use your favorite job scheduler to run the createIssue action from the JIRA Command Line Interface

Thanks, Bob. The JIRA Command Line Interface looks quite powerful. Ultimately, though I wonder if that's a bit overkill for what we need at the moment. We'll keep it in mind, though.
