How to auto-create an issue

One of our clients wants us to create more than 20 proactive issues last Monday of every month to manage the month end checkups. Because it takes too much time to create this much issue one by one, I need to know if there is any possibility to create the same issue every month automatically.

Hi Burcu,

You could use the rest api and a script on another machine to simply call the rest api to create those issue every Monday. More information about the rest api can be found here:

If you had a Server instance of JIRA you could have done it using Jelly Scripts.

Best regards,


Hi Peter,

This was really useful; thank you so much.

Best regards
