Teams: Notification settings

Notifications in Teams can be set-up for chats and channel conversations.

Features in Jira_Start a chat in Jira_Jira Software chat notifications.jpg

With Jira Software/business projects, you can allow notifications every time you start a new MS Teams chat from your Jira issue.

Technically, it is our Smart Connect for Jira app which acts like a bot here and posts updates on the issue in the respective MS Teams chat.

Based on the settings, you can decide what kind of issue updates to a linked issue should be posted.

For channel conversations, updates on an issue will be posted in the respective channel where an issue e.g. has been shared with the team.

For chats, updates to an issue will be posted in the respective (issue-related) chat in MS Teams.

Settings overview

Please note: These settings do not apply to JSM customer chats. Those can be enabled separately in the 'Customer portal' tab. 🚀 Learn more.

You can decide among the following configuration options for notifications in Teams.

The configuration can only be done in your Jira admin settings and goes for all of your Jira software/business projects.

  2. New comment incl. internal comments: see point 1. Plus anytime there are internal comments made, an update will be posted, too.

  3. New attachments: As soon as new attachments are added, an update will be posted.

Simple tick those issue changes / issue field changed you assume as being most important to you and your team.
