I am trying to configure Slack integration in JIRA Software cloud and I can only select public channels from Slack for notification. I've read that it should be possible to select private channels as well. Also, this should be possible without any additional JIRA Add-ons for Slack integration.
You need to invite the JIRA Cloud Bot into your Slack private channel first.
Go to the private channel in Slack and type in "/invite @Jirabot"
Then you should be able to select the channel from the dropdown list (or use the "/jira connect" option from within Slack) to complete the integration.
The screenshot looks like you are trying to add the Slack channel from the Project in your JIRA instance. Instead, try adding your project(s) from the private Slack channel.
Within the channel type "/jira connect yourjiraname.atlassian.net" if you haven't made the connect yet, or simply manage your channel's subscription by typing '/jira' in the channel.
It will open a Slack integration page that is similar to the one you posted, but the difference will be that you'll be asked to select the JIRA projects you want to connect to the specific channel in Slack.
This was the method I used in our instance and was able to make the desired integration. I wasn't able to do it the other way either.
Hope that helps!
