How do i restrict slack access to certain Jira projects

We have been using the slack intergration for notifications on new and completed tasks. However these occur for every Jira project not just the one originally setup for slack. I have removed channel connections to all project but i still get notifications.

Without removing slack completely how do i allow slack only to notify on the projects I select?

Hi Robert,

While creating the webhook for Slack integration in JIRA, you can filter the projects  that you're interested in by JQL. Screenshot 2020-06-17 at 17.51.40 1.png


Final configuration of the WebHook should look like this.

Issue related events

JQL: project in ("second project","test project")
  • created
  • updated


Hope this helps,


Thanks, is this the same for Jira Cloud? If so where to I access the Webhook?

Hi Robert,

I'm not an expert for Jira Cloud but you should access via Settings (Icon next to your Avatar)/System/Advanced Settings/WebHooks

If you're using some add-ons from the marketplace for Slack - Jira integration, then it's better to contact the vendor of the add-on for the configuration.

There's also "Slack Integration" settings for each project, simply removing it will do the trick.

hi @Deniz Secilir following up on this question re: Cloud. We have the Atlassian - Slack Integration set up for JIRA cloud and use JIRA and JIRA Service Management. We would like to restrict users in Slack to only be able to create/update issues in Service Management but not JIRA where our development work is tracked.

The integration now allows the user to select which Project they want to add the issue in and we would like to prevent the JIRA project from appearing. Not seeing any way to do that in Webhooks (the Slack integration does not appear there) or Events in the cloud. 

Any guidance you can offer??
