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.

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?
