Hi @Marcus Jones @Thanks for the response. Is it not possible when creating an issue itself. This seems to be for the ones where request is already created

Perhaps another community member can answer that. This works for me since I am creating the ticket in the same workflow and then using the Key for the just created ticket to call the attachments API and add the attachment. So it actually ends up being two calls. one to create the ticket and one to add the attachments.

To use Jira-SD's REST API for attaching files and it is possible when creating an issue itself, follow these steps:

  1. Upload the files and save them as temporary attachments. Refer to the documentation here https://docs.atlassian.com/jira-servicedesk/REST/5.7.0/#servicedeskapi/servicedesk/{serviceDeskId}/attachTemporaryFile

  2. Create an issue using the IDs of the temporary attachments provided by the `/attachTemporaryFile` API. Include these IDs in the "attachment" field, for example: `"attachment": ["4786e3a5-52be-4d5b-bf3d-5f53e54f4559", "1187b2b7-8a75-4eac-88b2-b6e43129ef5c"]`.

Hi Mayur,

The attachment API URL is 

https://<yourinstance>/rest/api/3/issue/<IssueKey>/attachments

 You need to make sure you have the header:

X-Atlassian-Token = no-check

I'm using power automate to enter the File Name and the Body/Content of the message as in the image below:
