Create sub-task in JIRA from Slack Edited

I wish to know how to create a sub-task within a story from Slack.

I'd love to achieve this:

  • Create the story on JIRA.
  • Add a new sub-task via the /JIRA command on Slack.
  • This sub-task should be added within the existing story on JIRA.

Here is the create issue structure for issues, note the support for sub-tasks:

Create <issue type> <project> <summary>

Create sub-task <parent-issue> <summary>

Use +fieldname to add additional fields:


Create <issue type> <project> <summary> +priority +description

Hey Venkatesh,


Thanks so much for the response!

I tried what you've suggested above. But, it doesn't work for me. I've managed to create a story from Slack. But, Slack doesn't seem to recognize the sub-task command. 

In your link here, I believe the integration with "Clubhouse" is necessary. I was hoping there'd be something out of the box with a pure Slack-JIRA integration?
