Repeat forDefines which date field of issue should be repeated accordingly with recurrence rule: the create date or the due date.

For example, if issue duration is 2 days, and the repeating occurrence falls on 10 January 2017 (based on recurrence rule) then:
  • when issue create date is selected - new cloned issue will be created at 10 January 2017 with due date equal 12 January 2017 (due date is calculated to be 2 days after 10 January 2017)
  • when issue due date is selected - new cloned issue will be created at 8 January 2017 with due date equal 10 January 2017 (create date is calculated to be 2 days before 10 January 2017)

Issue create date and issue due date is calculated with non-working days adherence. For details read Managing non-working days
