Smart values on Slack - How to display the key with an URL?



I wish to display a message on a Slack channel. Then, when I run my automation, I see the full URL of the issue.

How is it possible to see only the issue key with the link inserted?


The result should be something like this:

Hi, the issue key number is still in progress!


Thank you for your support!

Tested and confirmed.

Bonus: surround with asterisks for bold text:

This is *important*

Hyper-bonus: see all the markup options here, with a cool interactive option to experiment...

Hey hey
I've recently run into the same need. I use the following expression in the rule:

Issue <{{issue.url}}|{{issue.key}} {{issue.summary}}> ...

It will look like this:

Issue KEY-1234 Summary of the issue ...
