By popular request, we’ve teamed up with Slack to make it easier for teams to stay in sync, focus on the task at hand, and get the right people on the job with the new Jira Cloud for Slack app.

Multiple projects, an overabundance of information, and distributed team members can make teamwork difficult. The new official Atlassian Slack app simplifies workflow across these two tools. It can be set up in seconds, provides rich Jira notifications in Slack, and cuts through the clutter with detailed filtering. In addition to building collaboration tools that improve teamwork, Atlassian offers a Marketplace of over 2,000 add-ons, plug-ins and integrations that empowers each team member work where he or she is most comfortable and productive.

Get started in seconds with Jira Cloud for Slack

Installing Jira Cloud for Slack is as easy as clicking the Add to Slack button. The new @jirabot¬†will help you connect your Slack channel to your Jira account. The only thing left for you to do is sit back and start watching notifications from your team’s project roll in.

Stay focused on the important details

Just mention a Jira issue key in any Slack channel and the Jira bot will automatically fetch the key details. Based on your desired configuration, you can get a rich notification in your Slack channel that, when clicked, provides the key information you need to act.

You have total control over the signal to noise ratio by filtering notifications to selected channels, projects, issue types and priorities. You can also use simple slash commands to connect and subscribe to Jira events, manage your Jira connections and subscriptions, or get information about a specific issue.

Slack for Jira Cloud removes the constant hunt through documents and emails to get what you need when you need it. So if you’re a Slack user, check out the new Slack app to help you stay in sync, focus on the task, and get the right people on the job.
