How does security work?

The solution utilizes secure connections based on OAuth security to connect Slack to Jira. Once the connection is established the Slack APIs find matches to specific patterns in your channels where the bot has been invited. If a match is found an API call is made to Jira to take action. All matching is done in memory and no logs are stored. We take your security and data privacy seriously. Learn more about our security practices or read our privacy policy
