How to create recurring tasks in JIRA

For example, I would like to get a monthly task to review a list of servers for updates.

 

Can any one tell me how would be possible in jira plugin development ?

I use a cron script that pokes things in over the REST API, but for something a bit less reliant on a bit of command line stuff, yes, you can do it.

There are several add-ons in the marketplace that can do it with a friendlier UI from within Jira, and the generalised tools like Automation and ScriptRunner enable you create regular processes.

You can, of course, write your own too.  Have a look at https://developer.atlassian.com/docs/atlassian-platform-common-components/shared-access-layer/scheduling-events-via-sal-tutorial if you want to do it yourself.

Thank you for the information, trying to avoid using add-ons...using a cron script over the REST API works too?

Don't use SAL's scheduler - it's in the process of being deprecated. There's now a new scheduler at https://bitbucket.org/atlassian/atlassian-scheduler which replaces SAL's scheduler. There's an example of how to use it at https://bitbucket.org/cfuller/atlassian-scheduler-jira-example
