Slack/Jira integration: How do I post comments to issues, from Slack?

Chris November 29, 2018

In Slack, using the slash command `/jira`, how do I comment on an issue?  I would think it would be something like `/jira PROJ-12 My comment for the issue`

Hello Chris, 

Check this out,

Slack doesn't have a Jira issue comment option as far as iI know.

Thanks.   Jirio looks like it is more full-featured.

  • Create a private channel with only you in (in slack)
  • Type @[deleted] in this channel
  • You will be asked to select a project and channel
  • If you are not asked to select a project type "dhil_jira"
  • Once you have selected a project select connect
  • now type "/jira <ticket id>"
  • The ticket will be shown and there will be 3 dots (ellipses next to it "...")
  • Click the dots, one of the options is a comment

Hey @Chris  stratejos - the intelligent assistant for tech teams. stratejos lets you do the basics add, comment, update, search Jira from Slack, and a lot more besides. 

Commenting works exactly like you describe `/stratejos PROJ-12 My comment for the issue`
