Slack alert with all tickets each time a new sprint starts / release is deployed

Hello all,


I would like to address the following use-cases:

1. Keeping key stakeholders updated each time a new sprint starts with the exact content of whats in the sprint

2. Similarly keep stakeholders updated each time a release is deployed with the exact content of whats in the sprint


Our organization uses slack for all communication so I would like to enable the following flow:


1. Each time a new sprint starts a message is sent to a given slack channel with a list of

all tasks

2. Each time a new release is deployed a message is sent to a given slack channel with a list of all tasks


Is this possible?

Yes, it is possible, and you can do this with automation. The first automation would be triggered on sprint started, then use a lookup issues for that sprint and then send the Slack message like this:

The second automation would trigger on version released.

@Mikael Sandberg thanks for your answer!


In this final stage of the automation how can I iterate through all of the stories captured in step two and display the titles and ideally links to the jira as the body of the slack message?

You can, but a better option would be to use the list feature to list them, lookup issues will return a list of issues and you can use that to create the list directly in the message like this:

* {{key}} {{summary}} {{url}}

You find out more information about using sections and list with smart values here

@Mikael Sandberg thanks so much this was super helpful! 


1. Is there a way to get the name of the sprint for the slack message?

2. Would you be able to explain the logic of the syntax you provided so I can learn how it works?
