How to create recurring tasks in JIRA

For example, I would like to get a monthly task to review a list of servers for updates.


Can any one tell me how would be possible in jira plugin development using scriptrunner?

You can create a file named service1.groovy with the following content

package groovy

log.error("service completed");

Then you put this file to <JIRA_HOME_DIRECTORY>/scripts/groovy

and then you configure a service in JIRA. You can read here how to configure it:

When you need to provide a groovy script file provide the following line



That is it. You will see in atlassian-jira.log file "service completed". Then change service1.groovy as you wish to meet your buisness goal. 

You can schedule a script to run every month (on any time period) by using Services in ScriptRunner which are described here.

Hope this helps.
