[Automation for Jira] Get last added attachment to issue using smart values



Is it possible to get name or id of last added attachment to issue using smart values?

I tried but it get last item from attachments list.

I'm not sure if this helps you exactly but if you use the smart value: {{attachment.created}}, it will give you a comma separated list of the creation date of all the attachments on an issue.

Hi @Michael March 

Thanks for tip but this is not what I need.

I need to get last added attachment. Dates are ok but I can't work in automation and search attachments based on creation date.





It is possible to use the smart value {{}}.

However, I find it very unreliable and inconsistent and it often does NOT report the last Id.

You should experiment with that - how is it different from what you tried at first?

Hi @Stuart__ 


*.first or *.last return first/last item from attachment list. In many cases last attachment on list isn't last added attachment.


I fixed this by using script runner in automation for jira. This gave me attachments list which I was able to use in automation.

It looks like below:
