Store attachments in a database


is it possible to store the attachments in a sql database automatically? We don't want them to be stored locally.

Hi @IT Frastanz , 


it's not possible to store attachment in the database, these will be kept on the filesystem. However, you can always map the attachments location to a network drive/share, with NFS or Samba for example.


Let me know if this helps, 



Hi @Alexis Robert ,

thanks for answering me.


The only way, I found, to change the attachment location is by creating a symbolic link ( Symbolic link ). I don't want to do it like that! Is there another way?

Hi @IT Frastanz , 


you can simply mount your NFS share directly at the location of your Jira attachment directory, at <JIRA_HOME>/data/attachments
