We have configured a process where users can submit Jira email requests for suspicious emails and this works correctly to create a ticket, but the email attachment is not added to the new Jira ticket. The file format is .eml and we use the Jira Cloud version.
I checked my Outlook outbox and the email has the intended attachment. I checked our Mimecast and the email attachment is present.
Found the following resources but nothing that could help me resolve:

Morning @Trudy Claspill
We are using an Outlook tool precompiled by Trend to allow our users to send an email to email@example.com. The email sends out as the Outlook user and creates a Jira ticket.
In the Jira service desk project we have setup email requests using this same email as per attached screenshot.
Yes the user has permission to create attachments. They can normally add attachments to issues directly with no problem. The problem only occurs when its via the email request business process.
Using the email feature I am unable to select additional attachments of my choice, please see attachment. Instead I followed the steps:
The steps created a new email request ticket SD-7469. All attachments were added to the ticket correctly. The only difference I know is that this process created a ticket within the SD: Email Request Workflow but the problematic tickets are created into the SD: Incidents workflow.
Jira support created an email request successfully with attachments but this used the SD:Service Requests workflow. So I think the fix is somewhere in the D: Incidents workflow, just don't know what setting to tweak.
I'm not aware of any settings that need to be added to a workflow in order for attachments to be successfully attached to an issue.
Since you are seeing a difference based on the workflow that is managing the issue creation, you should probably examine the Create transition in that workflow to see if any Post Functions have been added that might be removing the attachments. You might also look at the Automations associated with the project (or globally) that could be impacting the state of the created issues.
Project managers know this problem: A “mountain of work” lays in front of you, and you don’t know how and where to tackle them. Different to-dos lie ahead, but just one task after the other can be ha...
