Export attachements from one project


one of our customers would like to export all attachements from a single project. Can anybody tell us how this works? Many thanks.

There's no function for export attachments from JIRA in the UI really.

You can grab them from the server file system in a reasonably logical order if you want (they're saved by project and issue key, but with modified file names)

Here is an example using JIRA Command Line Interface (CLI). Don't let all the quoting through you off wink. Basically, this is getting a list of all issues in your project and for each of those, getting a list of all attachments, and for each of those getting the attachment and putting in a unique file

jira --action runFromIssueList --project "PROJKEY" --common "--action runFromAttachmentList --issue @issue@ --common \"--action getAttachment --issue @issue@ --id @attachmentId@ --file \"\"@issue@/@attachment@\"\" \" "

Yes, thats fine. At /var/atlassian/application-data/data/attachments are folders with name same as the projects. Thats good. I've export the folder of this project. I hope thats fine for the customer. Unfortunately, these are just thumbnails, but that is hopefully good for the customer. Thanks for help.
