Email notification at specified interval

Hi all. I'm looking for a way to send email notification at a specified inteval based on a bug's priority. For example, if a bug is marked as a "Blocker", I'd like the owner to be emailed once every hour until the bug is resolved. Any ideas on how to do this? Thanks!

You probably want a service, or just a subscription with a cron expression. A listener will handle mailing someone when the priority changes to Blocker.

But... seriously, take a step back. Mail someone every hour? How absolutely maddening that would be to be on the receiving end of that.

Hey Fender4645,

You need to write a scheduled task. Take a look at



We use the following plug-in

Builtin Script Listener

And you can configure a custom email when conditions are met. Exactly what you are looking for I think.

Thanks, guys. It looks like script listener may be what we're looking for. But in my cursory check, it looks like an event has to trigger it. Can it be scheduled?
