Jira + Slack Integration: Personal Notifications

Jira + Slack Integration: App Home - Demo Den October



Hi everyone!

I'm so excited to discuss the newest features of our Jira + Slack integration.

If you don't have the integration yet, just click here to install the Jira Cloud app onto your Slack workspace. Then, you'll be able to pipe your personal Jira notifications into Slack instead of email, and view your most important issues right in Slack without switching to Jira. I can't wait to hear what you think!

did you guys recently make any changes to this integration, I've been getting notifications in Slack using the Jira cloud integration for months now. It's been working great. All of a sudden my notifications stopped flowing into slack. 

Hi @Jeffrey Bistrong,

I'm glad to hear you've been enjoying using Jira notifications in Slack. Around the date you posted this comment we experienced some issues receiving notification events from Jira, which resulted in an interruption in notifications through Slack to end users. Apologies for the late communication!

We deployed a fix back then and things should be up and running again. Are you able to receive notifications now?

Thanks for your feedback!


How to notify just for one project?

Like David Michelson likes this

In Slack, use the /jira connect command and it will bring up configuration options. To connect to a project, select the site and project from the options in the dropdowns at the bottom, choose whether you want the messages to go to DMs or a channel, and click the Connect button.




Once you've connected Jira projects, you can use the /jira manage command to bring up the list of connected projects, and selecting the Manage button will take you to the Slack integration configuration page in that Jira project, where you can customize which issues and events send notifications and how they appear in Slack.

Hello, when we comment using Slack, this is added to the ticket as an external comment. Is it possible to add an option to create an internal comment too?


Hi @jessica.cuevas

Thank you so much for your feedback!

I can understand when you have a Jira Service Desk project that you sometimes would want to post an internal note that a customer cannot see when commenting from Slack. And you're right, unfortunately today you can only post external comments from Slack. In order to post internal comments, you'll have to click the issue link and go into Jira.

I'd love to hear more about your use case - when do you want to post internal comments from Slack? What sort of issues are they?

As of today, we don't have any plans today to add this functionality, but we'll keep track of your feedback. Thank you!

any plans to add the ability to show active jira sprints?

Hi Dan,

Could you tell me more about what you envision for showing active Jira sprints, and why you would like to do that? Sounds super interesting.



Hello David,  sure i think in general the ability to embed JQL type macros would be ideal...similar as you might add JIRA macros to Confluence.
