The advanced features of Nextup require a secure OAuth connection for each user. This connectivity allows Nextup to know who you are in JIRA and attribute your actions via Nextup correctly.

What it does:

  • Creates a secure OAuth based connection - your password is never shared with nextup
  • Allows Nextup to attribute comments, created issues, work logs, etc to the correct JIRA user
  • Connects your Slack username with your JIRA account

Follow this process to get authorized:

  • If not prompted to authorize just type auth to kick off the process
  • If prompted the bot will ask the user automatically

Click Allow

Close the success screen and return to Slack
