Triggering Slack notifications when issue moves projects

I'm looking to receive a notification in Slack when a JIRA issue moves from one project to another. Is there an easy way to do this? Do the projects need to have the same workflow scheme?

Hi Hillary,

You can achieve it with our add on Jirassimo


With the following template (event issue_updated)


#foreach ($issue in $issues)
  #foreach ($item in $issue.lastchange.items)
    #if ($item.field == "project" and $item.fromString == "Source Project Name" and $item.toString ==    "TARGET_PROJECT_KEY")
        $issue.key was changed from $item.fromString to $item.toString




Vladimir, is there a way to set up this template so that you don't have to specify the source project? We use multiple projects and I only want to monitor tickets that have been moved into my project.

@Monica Farrell Yes, absolutely. Just try the following:

  #if ($item.field == "project" and $item.fromString != "Source Project Name" and $item.toString ==    "TARGET_PROJECT_KEY")
