You can use JIRA Python to do this.

Here is my example code:

jira = JIRA(basic_auth=(un, pwd), options={'server': server})

issue = jira.issue(issuekey, fields='summary,comment,attachment')

for attachment in issue.fields.attachment:
	with open('dl-%s' % (attachment.filename), 'wb') as file:


This script will cycle through all the attachments on a given issue, and download them one by one to the current directory (prefixing each with the string "dl-").
