Reoccurring Weekly Tasks in Jira



I am wondering how I can set some tasks as reoccurring so that they automatically appear in our weekly sprints. I see that an add on called TheScheduler can do this but there is no link to UPLOAD ADD ON as per the instructions.

Choose "Add-Ons", then navigate to "Manage Add-Ons" (the "Install" section in older versions).

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

The Scheduler is not available for JIRA Cloud, so I guess you're stuck unless someone else has a solution for you.

Hey Tara,


I'm afraid that's not really possible in JIRA OnDemand, and there isn't any plugin that's available for OnDemand that can perform this. But, with some coding and development, you can make use of client applications like JIRA CLI from Bob Swift softwares to create recurring tasks. I'd suggest taking a look at the following thread:


Also, we have an improvement request for this at:
