Slack Jira: as admin I configured slack with Jira and I see issues in Slack..How do I set up the rest of the team so they also see issues in Slack from Jira?

I can see the channel and have set that up..all issues going in that one channel....Question:: Is it possible to send issue direclty to a @user account in Slack as opposed to a channel, instead of their work email?

Did you find a solutions for this question? 

It's easy using Jirassimo add-on (https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/net.vacom.jirassimo/cloud/overview)

You will need to create a messenger and in "Channel" textarea write something like this:

"@user"   

without the quotes. This will do the trick for hardcoded usernames in Slack, but if you need to dynamically resolve Slack user from email, then you can use the following construct:

{{#issues}} {{#fields}} {{#settingValue key=reporter.emailAddress}}{{/settingValue}} {{/fields}} {{/issues}}

Here, Jirassimo will pick up the email address of reporter and resolve it against Slack @user that you configure under Jirassimo settings page as key=value list.

Hope this helps,
