Is there a way to create a recurring JIRA?

Let's say I have a recurring monthly task. Each month, the users need to create a new JIRA for tracking purposes. Is there a way for me to set it up a JIRA or special Issue Type so that a new JIRA is created on a regular basis automatically (say, monthly)?


EDIT: For example, there is a report that i have to generate at the beginning of each month. Ideally, a new Issue would be created on the first of each month for generating the report. After I finish, I close the issue as normal, and next month, a new one will be auto generated.

Yes, you can use a service checking for a certain date in a month. You could use scripting (ScriptRunner, JJupin,others) to create your recurring task.

no idea how to do this.

As I know.. this is not possible OOTB. You will need to use a plugin or a script to achieve that. I think that The Scheduler might fit into your needs:


unfortunately we use the cloud version.

do you mean an issue or ticket ?

I'm not sure of the difference, but it the system that we use, it's referred to as an Issue. 

right, so you want an issue to be re-created monthly in a specific date>?

yes, see my edit to the original post.

Bit of an outside the box solution but what about setting up a scheduled task on a windows box that creates an issue via JIRAs REST api? Easy to maintain and doesn't require writing a plugin wink
