How can I create a Slack message from the results of a Jira issue filter?

I am trying to create a Slack message that has the results of an issue filter as the body. The issues from the filter should be in a list.

Can I automate that a slack message with results of a JIRA query is sent out to a Slack channels on schedule?

Hi Drew,

You currently can only do this in server. You could do it in cloud but it would ping your slack room with a message per issue, not ideal...

The way you would do for server is by using a scheduled trigger, and specify the filter in the jql input, and make sure you check the "Process all issues in bulk" option.



Then in the message part of the slack action, you can iterate over the issues object to print the results to your slack room.


{{#issues}}{{key}} - {{summary}}{{/}}


Hi Scott, thank you for the reply and I'm sorry that it took so long to get back here. Do you know if there are plans to implement this for cloud in the future?

Hi @Scott Harwood ,

from which app or config page is that screenshot?

I would like to know where one can set up such a notification.



It's from Jira Automation

Like Jens Kisters __SM likes this

@Drew Nedderman You can create custom Slack commands to post commands from Slack and display responses to the slack channel from where the command was run.


Would love to see this implemented. The ability to post JQL messages in slack and get the issues right-a-way. Pretty much as Jira-Integration+ does, I think.
