Hi @Suporte JRetail ,

It's do-able! The Slack UID of a user needs to be saved as a property on the Jira side so that Automation can pull it out as a smart value. This takes a little prep work!

We've provided a python script and instructions to match a Jira account and Slack account and then save the value in Jira. Following that article, you can get the properties matched and use a smart value to mention a user from Automation.


Thank you very much, I'll try to do that. Appreciate it.
