Last week Atlassian announced a strategic partnership with Slack, a leading software for instant communication and team collaboration. As teams continue to become more agile and move at the speed of light, instant and efficient communication is an ever expanding need. (Not to mention that the team that memes together, wins together.)
This partnership is the next best step to continue providing best of breed collaboration and communication software for Atlassian’s customers. For the companies using Hipchat or Stride, it will be time to say goodbye on February 15, 2019 so now is a good time to start thinking about data migration. Need help migrating or have questions about how this will impact your team’s tools? As trusted Atlassian Platinum Solution Partners, we got you, so hit us up for a friendly chat.
We at cPrime will definitely miss those snazzy little emoticons but we are ready to embrace the Slack giphy integration with open arms!
Keeping the customer at the center of their business, Atlasssian promises deeper existing integrations between Slack and Jira Cloud, Bitbucket Cloud, and Trello, and create new integrations with other products to continue to improve the way that teams interact and collaborate.
Why wait? There's no better time to integrate Jira and Slack than today, and of course, Power Scripts can help you configure this in a few easy steps. Starting with version 4.0.13 of the Power Scripts, we've added the ability to use SIL scripts in order to send a message to Stride or Slack. To get it ex-slack-ly right (it was a stretch but we got there), just follow the instructions below:
To do this, you must have Administrator permissions.
To configure an integration, perform the following actions:
To edit or remove a configuration, click Edit/Delete.
In order to send a message to a Slack room, add an integration configuration on the Integration Configurations page. The access token can be a bot, a workspace, or a user token. If you want to create a bot for your workspace, perform the following steps:
Now your configuration is ready to be used in a script.
You can read more about how to create/regenerate tokens for Slack here.
To send a message to Slack when an issue is created, add a post-function on the create transition in Jira with the following code:
Here's an example of how this notification would look like in Slack.
Not ready to break your Stride? We also integrate with Stride, follow the instructions here! But make sure you plan your migration soon, as Atlassian will only continue to support Stride, Hipchat Cloud, Hipchat Server, and Hipchat Data Center until the following dates:
