I'm not 100% sure why there's 2 scheduled triggers in Automation for JIRA? What's the difference?

The main difference is that the "Scheduled" trigger doesn't provide any issues to subsequent actions like the "Scheduled JQL trigger".

The "Scheduled" trigger is useful when you want to run actions that don't require issues as input. For example, you might want to create a new issue once a week using a "Scheduled" trigger.

The "Scheduled JQL trigger" is useful when you want to check a list of issues on a regular interval. For example you may want to check if an SLA has been breached.

There's many more rule components available!
