This is such a common use case that we included a pre-defined template called "Recurring tasks". If you use this to create an automation rule, you'll get:

Project automation - Code Barrel JIRA 2016-09-20 11-25-42.png

This uses 2 rule components:

  • A scheduled trigger that runs on the first of the month using a CRON expression
  • And a 'Create issue' action that creates an issue when the trigger runs.

Using the create issue action, you can set any field necessary on the newly created issue.  You could also include other actions to assign the issue to a user etc.

 

Thanks for your answer.

I've tried to create a rule to update a set of issues defined by a JQL query and when I choose to update an issue's Due Date it can only set a specific Date. Is it possible to shift the Due Dates, say, 1 weak ahead?

Hi Andrey,

yes, you should be able to achieve this with date functions and smart values: http://docs.codebarrel.io/automation/index.html#/smart-fields/working-with-dates?id=date-functions-1

 

You'd probably need to set the due date to something like:

{{#issue.duedate}}func=plusDays(7){{/}}

Hope that helps!

Cheers,
 Andreas

Andreas, thanks once again!

What about CurrentIssue.DueDate + 1 Day? Is it possible to set the value like that? Haven't found this in the document.

Hey Andrey,

Not 100% sure what you mean by current issue, but that should be just:

{{#issue.duedate}}func=plusDays(1){{/}}

Cheers,

  Andreas

I don't see that "Recurring tasks" template anywhere in the template library... mind boggling.

Hi,

I am creating a rule to create a recurring task on the first of the month and then want to set the due date = 10 days after the create date.

In the scheduled trigger I have the CRON expression: 0 15 7 1 * ?

And for the Due Date do I use: {{#issue.duedate}}func=plusDays(10){{/}}
}
}

Thanks

Robert

I wanted to know if my rule will work.
