Insert images in the issue description with automation

Oooh. Tricky. So the only way Jira does images inside of Description is by including an attachment with code like:


I don't think Automation (in the Cloud) allows for adding attachments. :-{

Interestingly, Automation on Server and Data Center does appear to have this capability:

So if by chance the image you want to include in Description is externally accessible (doesn't need to be an attachment to Jira), you could do this:

I guess it would help if we knew what your use case was.

My use case was to attach screenshot images of the task showing how to configure XYZ.

I think I should probably embed an external google doc or something that contains more details about the task with screenshot images in this case.
