Is there an automatic way to add a Jira Burndown chart to slack?

Is there an automatic way to add a Jira Burndown chart to slack?

 

At the moment, I do this manually but was wondering if there was a way to do this where I could set up a slack reminder that would post the burndown chart every few days.

 

Thanks for the help.

Hi Sha, welcome to the Community!

The first consideration is that the burndown chart is rendered in the browser rather than being served up as an image by Jira. Would I be right in assuming you're taking a screenshot of it if you're posting an image to Slack?

In order to have something post without any effort on your end, it would be the most straightforward to put a message with just a link to the burndown chart to remind people to view it. You can copy the link from the Burndown Chart link in the sidebar (getting it from the URL bar will include a parameter for a specific sprint, and you don't want that for this).

Then in Slack, you can use the /remind command to have Slackbot send a message to the channel at the time you specify. As an example:

/remind #awesome-team "Good morning! Take a quick peek at the burndown chart to see how we're doing. Thanks! https://yoursite.atlassian.net/burndownlink" every Tuesday

Or extending that with some message formatting, you can get fancy (swapping in your own link of course):

/remind #awesome-team “Good morning! <https://yoursite.atlassian.net/burndownlink|*Take a quick peek at the burndown chart to see how we’re doing.*> Thanks! https://media.giphy.com/media/3orieVe5VYqTdT16qk/giphy.gif” every Tuesday

Hope this helps!
