this would make run the CRON everyday at 3 AM, not PM. Formats are listed here:

So it should be 0 0 15 ? * *


(Don't worry its for filter results, CRON format inside JIRA is same for all things)

Would this make the job run everyday at 3PM as well?

0 0 15 * * ?

No.  It means just 15:00.

Yes, it is valid format too. As ? is expressed as no particular value value (usefull for day of motnh or day of week positions) and * is expressed as any particular value.


0 0 15 ? * * means on every day of week in every month at 15:00

0 0 15 * * ? means on every day of month in every month at 15:00


There are lots of way to do this thing in CRON format - you can try it here:


Other formats, which should work too:

0 0 15 1/1 * ? *

0 0 15 ? * MON-FRI


Take a look on the examples at page I posted, it should help you understand the CRON format.

@Scott McDonaldAny updates? Is it working for you?
