Hello community, we're experiencing a problem when we try to add an attachment from a clipboard to a comment. It renders ok in the beginning but soonest the "post comment" button is clicked it shows a grayed-out thumbnail with two mountains and an "x" sign. :) Also in the top right corner, the message is displayed saying: "attachments cannot be added on this screen". This is a view/edit issue screen.
We are able to add an attachment to the issue and then link it to a comment successfully but it's irritating and time-consuming. It only happens when we try to add it during a comment creation.
I've checked permissions, fields configuration, and fields configuration schemes and they are ok.
welcome to the Atlassian Community!
this sounds strange - I know what you mean as for this use case (as today I did the same but it worked out fine on a Jira v8.5 installation).
Which version are you on?
Could you please kindly check atlassian-jira.log if there is a meaningful error logged?
Hi Daniel, sorry for the late response. We're on the Jira core 8.5.1 and SD 4.5.1. I've asked a user to recreate the problem and that what was logged in the log. I have removed IP and user name from the log :)

This looks pretty much like a troubling App. Please check ALL Apps for possible updates and/or try to narrow down to which is causing this exactly - there has to be one (at least one) that is causing this.
I forgot: in case you use Script Runner please also check all groovy Scripts in place, Listeners, and so on. There is some indication that also there could be the cause.
