Teamwork can be challenging, especially with multiple projects, an overabundance of information and distributed team members. Jira is built for every member of your software team to plan, track and release great software. Use Slack for Jira Cloud to remove the constant hunt through documents and emails to get what you need when you need it.

  • Rich notifications in your Slack channel that, when clicked, provides the key information you need to act
  • Powerful filtering to selected channels, projects, issue types and priorities to cut out the clutter
  • Slash commands to connect and subscribe to Jira events, manage your Jira connections and subscriptions, or get information about a specific issue.
  • Easy set up with the Jira bot to get up and running fast

The best software teams ship early and often. With Slack for Jira Cloud, it's easy to stay in sync, focus on the task, and get the right people on the job.

Does the job only for reading mode. It is missing the write mode : you cannot create/update tickets directly from slack

Good Jira Slack integration, but has a couple of glaring issues: 1) Keyword Jira ticket lookup only works for 2 channels, not for any other channels I set up. Tried resetting the bot and settings, creating new channels, etc... /jira MY-1234 will work for all channels, but MY-1234 will only work for 2 channels. Don't know why. 2) When in one of the two channels where keyword ticket look-up works, only the first ticket of the list of tickets will expand, and the bot is stuck at "Looking for JIRA... <hourglass>". Fix these two problems and this is a 4 star app.

Thanks for the feedback, Gene. In the channels where Jira issue key lookups aren't working, is the @jirabot in the channel? In order for issue key lookups (aka unfurls) to work, @jirabot needs to be a member of that channel. We'll look into the other issue you reported.

Love the idea of Slack become a place where we can at a glance see progress at a project level. My main issue is that I'd like to connect an Epic within a project to a slack channel. If someone makes an update to task within Epic 1, then notify Slack channel 1. Is this is the pipeline or is my only option to take my epics to projects (one level up) ?

Generally this is a pretty nice integration, however one issue that we've found is that if you have notifications turned on for transitions (e.g. when an issue is closed) it will only send the notification to Slack if you close the issue without writing a comment. In other words if you close an issue (I expect the same is true for other transitions) and add a comment as part of the same workflow transition then close notification will not be sent to Slack.

The #Jirabot is very useful to receive your Jira notification and tailor the level of information you need. It has two shortcomings/requests: 1. Take Jira action in slack: It is not very useful to act on the card. You have to use the notification link, which takes you back to Jira. You are not able to add a comment, re-assign the issue to somebody else, or change the status, etc. When a Jira issue card is assigned to me, I would like to respond right from the /jirabot notification channel, thus take the next action that is required without leaving the /jirabot channel. 2. Use Jira in slack conversation. You cannot use Jira issues in slack conversation. I tried /jira vpng-18000 to discuss issues with others but that is not supported. Those conversations have to take place in emails, or in Jira. It needs a deeper integration with slack. 3. I would also love to be able to configure which notifications come thru to my slack (usually, less important is turned off). That would be very useful when using smaller form factors (smartphone, iPads) during off hours or remote days.

Thanks for your review, Gerard. We're working to make @jirabot better. Re: #2 above... assuming @jirabot is inside your channel, you should be able to just mention the issue key (i.e., ISSUE-123) and @jirabot will provide a preview of that issue inside of your channel. /jira ISSUE-123 will also work, but the response will only be visible by the person who typed that command. As for #3... you can configure what events in JIRA your channel receives. Type `/jira manage` to update your subscription settings.

Works, but would be best if we could do a filter for issues related to an individual user. My team want a feed that is unique to each of them, and this does not allow for that, it's full firehose or bust.

Not sure why this is a low star rating but this does the job. Would like integration to post from Slack referencing JIRA ticket to the comments section of the JIRA ticket. If that is possible, then four stars!
