Automatic Channel sync
Set up automatic channel sync for selected projects, with JQL filters and conditions. Whenever the conditions (start channel sync only when this happens in Jira) are satisfied in the selected project and JQL, Troopr would automatically create a new channel with the name specified in the ‘New Slack channel configuration’ tab. Users can create mutiple automatic channel sync with this feature.
Setup Automatic channel sync:
Step 1: Go to Troopr web app- HelpDesk- Channel sync- Automatic channel sync- +New automatic channel sync
Step 2: Choose the project, type the JQL (mandatory)
Step 3: Under ‘Start channel sync only when this happens in Jira’, choose between the options ‘Issue is created’ or ‘Issue field is updated’. This will determine when the channel must be created.
Step 4: If you have selected, ‘Issue field is updated’, choose the field as well.
Step 5: By default, your channel name will be under the syntax @@@jira_issue_key@@@-troopr-sync (eg: ip-32-channel-sync) but you can change it to issue summary syntax.
To change the channel name syntax, click on ‘Show channel name syntax’, copy the preferred syntax and paste it in the field. You can also make the channel private by clicking on the ‘Make channel private’ checkbox.
Step 7: Once the configurations are set, click on ‘Save’.
Based on this configuration, whenever an issue is created in the Jira project ‘Design (DES)’, with resolution=Unresolved, a new private channel will be created in the configured Slack workspace. The assignee, reporter, watchers will get automatically added to this Slack channel.
You can configure the channel sync even further by choosing how syncing should work in that channel. Choose between 2 way (all Slack messages will be added as issue comments and all issue updates will be posted to this channel), 1 way (post issue updates from Jira to this channel) or no sync. You can also delete the channel sync by clicking on ‘Delete’ button.
Once a channel has been created, you can disable it by switching off the status in ‘Channel sync’ under ‘HelpDesk.’
