Recurring issues

Diane Arsenault Aug 06, 2012

I'd like to add recurring issues to my JIRA projects. Have you been successful with this?

There's (paid) The Scheduler plugin. Haven't tried it myself though.

Jelly scripts and the remote API are built-in, but I think the easiest place to start is the Command Line Interface from Bob Swift, it's a great tool. You'd use the createIssue command. Check the 'examples' page:

jira --action createIssue --project "zjiracli" --type "task" --summary "This is content."

What do you mean by 'recurring issues'? Do you mean like a to-do type reminder that gets created once a week, or something like that?

If so, you can run either a Jelly script, or use the JIRA CLI or the remote API with a cron job.

Hi Jermey,

Yes, as you described: to-do type reminder. Jelly script, CLI and remote API are all new to me so I guess I still have a steep learning curve. I am new and the pm on this project is intense so I hope I can figure it out soon. :)

You can also use Repeating Issues for JIRA

This add-on can execute different actions repeatedly for given issue e.g. clone issue, create sub-task in issue, reopen issue


@CodeDoers: So far, I have had trouble understanding the "Issue workflow". The user documentation do not shows any good examples for this. sad 

A useful scenario for this action is to reopen a single issue at the end of its lifecycle again and again . Copies of this issue will not created and are not necessary.

Not aim of this action is that it triggers a transition in the middle of workflow.

Did I understand that feature correctly?
