JIRA Automation | Cron syntax

Really getting into the JIRA automation, and have a question regarding the cron syntax for scheduled tasks.

I know how to do 9am on 2nd tuesday of each month, with the 3#2, but was curious if there is a way to do  2nd tuesday + 3 days (3 days after the 2nd tuesday)?

Would 3#2+3 work? Havent tried it, guessing that syntax actually wouldnt, but wondering if there is some syntax that would/known? I know its a stretch...

You can try the cronmaker application to introduce the values and translate them into cron expression you are looking for

I hope it helps you

Yeah, I tried 0 0 9 ? 1/1 3#2+3 * and it blew an error (like I expected).
Ill see how I can get creative starting with 0 0 9 ? 1/1 3#2 * and then maybe set the due date +3 or something.

Thanks for trying (and showing me that link (I usually use

Wouldn't 3 days after the second Tuesday always be the second Friday?

0 0 9 ? * 5#2

while 6#2 would be the 2nd friday, it would not be the friday after the 2nd tuesday (3#2+3) if the 1st of the month fell on Wed/Thu/Fri .
