Attachment create event does not fire when attachment is created through Java


I hope someone is familiar with Atlassian SDK for Jira Server.

I try to catch an event when an attachment is added to Jira Issue. Here is my code listening to issue events:

public class IssueEventListener implements InitializingBean, DisposableBean {

    private static final Logger log = LoggerFactory.getLogger(IssueEventListener.class);

    private final EventPublisher eventPublisher;

    public IssueEventListener(EventPublisher eventPublisher) {
        this.eventPublisher = eventPublisher;

    public void destroy() throws Exception {"Disabling plugin");

    public void afterPropertiesSet() throws Exception {"Enabling plugin");

    public void onIssueEvent(IssueEvent issueEvent) {
        Long eventTypeId = issueEvent.getEventTypeId();
        Issue issue = issueEvent.getIssue();

        if (eventTypeId.equals(EventType.ISSUE_CREATED_ID)) {
            log.warn("Issue {} has been created at {}.", issue.getKey(), issue.getCreated());
            System.out.println("issue created");
        else if (eventTypeId.equals(EventType.ISSUE_UPDATED_ID)) {
            log.warn("Issue {} has been updated (Attachment created/deleted at {}.", issue.getKey(), issue.getUpdated());
            System.out.println("issue updated");


Here is the code for attachment creation:

CreateAttachmentParamsBean attachmentParamsBean = new CreateAttachmentParamsBean.Builder(new File(path),
                filename, "text/plain", context.getLoggedInUser(),
        ChangeItemBean bean = ComponentAccessor.getAttachmentManager().createAttachment(attachmentParamsBean);

This code adds an attachment to the issue, but the event is not fired and issue history does not show that attachment also. On the other hand, when I add an attachment through Jira issue page manually, the event is fired and history shows an attachment too. So what is the problem with this code? Thanks in advance
