Can I force a template in slack when users create bugs from slack

I have slack integrated with Jira, currently, any user on slack can type "issue" and then give a description of whats going on, once they hit send it automatically creates a ticket. 
What I would like to do is have the bot respond with fields that they are required to fill out. 
Is there any way to do this?

Hello Dustin,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

I believe you are using the Official Slack integration plugin to integrate your JIRA instance with Slack. Is it correct?

I agree with you that the ability to set required fields when creating issues through Slack is definitely something useful to be implemented.

Unfortunately, it can not be achieved using the current Official integration, however, we have a feature request to get it implemented:

As a possible workaround, you can try a different third-party app that provides you with this functionality, like Stratejos:
