JIRA is used pretty much in all the enterprises we've worked in as an issue tracking system and it's a very nice tool. Slack is also more and more used everywhere, so we decided to combine them so we can use best of both worlds, directly from Slack!
What it does
At it's MVP, it's helps you lookup issues in JIRA and will tag your issues while you talk about them.
How we built it
Using Azure Bot Framework, it was simple to connect it to a Slack app and then use a bot very fast.
You can also test locally using Microsoft Bot Framework Emulator.
Challenges we ran into
At some point, Azure was not responsive anymore to a specific channel (maybe we hit the maximum free calls?)
Accomplishments that we're proud of
It works! :) It's also very simple to add commands
What we learned
Creating bots is pretty simple when you only connect 2 systems together.
