Send Custom Notification to Slack


Add custom slack notifications on a workflow post function, or as a custom listener after an issue event. Configure the message content and direct the message to a room or specific user.


As a project manager, I want to keep track of all changes to my watched issues. I can use this script to send me a slack notification when one of my watched issues is transitioned.
