Cron expression for first working day of month

Alexandru Corbeanu October 6, 2022

Hello,

I am trying to configure a rule on my project to create a task on the first working day of a month, but I am not sure how can I achieve this, or if it can be achieved. Does anyone know how to do it?

Hello Alex,

You can use Automation Rule to create Task and you can use this 0 0 0 1W*?* cron expression.

You can select trigger as Schedule. screenshot for your reference and you write the automation.

I tried that out at https://crontab.guru/  but received an error.

I confirm that also in JIRA throws an error when configuring CRON with 0 0 0 1W*?*

Hi @Alexandru Corbeanu , may I ask why you are electing CRON rather than the simple config? Maybe there is more to your CRON?

First day of month is considered as "First working day of month" ? Because that is what I am looking to achieve. For example, if 1st of November would be Sunday, I want the task to be created on 2nd (Monday), because that would be the first working day.

Ah...yes. Sorry I missed that important bit. I am not immediately sure but will spend a few moment to give it a go.
