Is there any way in JIRA where we can have the ability to create recurring tasks with 'scheduled' due dates .As an example - if we know something is going to expire - can we create a ticket that is 'always open' and will reoccur yearly so we can refer to it in a 'Calendar' or something in Confluence. What i mean is that we have some sort of 'birthday reminder' functionality and we can see it in a confluence calendar
In OOTB JIRA you cannot schedule any recurring tasks. There are couple extensions that cover that. The most popular is The Scheduler - https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/pl.com.tt.jira.plugin.theschedulerpro/server/overview
There might be other ways or other plugins on the market. You would need to verify if something new is there or as a alternative develop something (like a script that would connect to Jira/Confluence via REST api on specific time and do something that api allows. Options are endless but it is a matter of mixing requirements and maintenance later. Extension if it is good and supported would be always the easiest way to go.
