Jira @mention notifications in Slack?

I am looking for a better (i.e. more immediate) way to be notified when I am mentioned in a Jira Issue - particularly interested in the @mention of myself in the comments.

Slack would be ideal, but I'd settle for a hack in Confluence (I use a macro to query these, but I have to be looking at the page to know about it), desktop notification or even a mobile notification.

Looks like emails are all or nothing, or I'd customize to only receive emails with @mentions of me. Otherwise, they get lost.

Hey Danelle!

We're actively adding features to the Slack integration for Jira Cloud and this particular request has come in several times recently! We've got an issue you can watch and vote for on - API-80 which is the best place to stay in the loop on updates about this feature. Thanks for describing what you're looking for so we can build the best notifications for you!


@Daniel Eads Any update on this feature ?

Hey @Mishi Patel ,

The feature request is still in the "Gathering Interest" status. Watching the ticket directly on is the best way to stay in the loop for any updates.

Hey @Levon Brutyan and @Thomas Retif ! I just wanted to mention that work on personal Slack notifications for Jira activity has started. You can follow along on the feature request in Atlassian's Jira instance.

If you have strong thoughts on how you want this feature to work, you can also schedule time to chat with the Product Manager.

Thanks for your excitement about notifications!

This is a hilarious news. Thank you!

Hey @Daniel Eads ,

will this feature come to Jira Server as well?

Hi @Tim Roettger ,

Personal notifications for Jira Server are not on the short-term roadmap. Nonetheless, there is an open feature request here specific to Jira Server (the feature is live in Jira Cloud) that you can vote on.

Is there an open feature request for this?


Lack of service accounts makes this really problematic w/out it
