How do you send automatic Slack messages to a private channel?

After reviewing Atlassian's Slack automation documentation, I could not find any specific documentation about sending messages via Automation for Jira to private channels.

I am able to send Slack messages automatically to public channels, however, I am receiving a 404 error when trying to send a message to a private Slack channel.

Has anyone run into or solved this issue?

Hello Connor!

Thanks for reaching out about getting your Jira notifications within a private Slack channel. There is a similar post related to this which may be found at How can I configure JIRA Slack integration to use private Slack channels for notification? 

The short answer to the resolution is to invite the Jira bot into your private channel to allow access.
