How can I create an attachment to an issue in a post-function?

Hi. The problem:

I need to generate attachment based on summary and description on create transaction.

For example exactly after moment when user create issue. Attache should appear after issue was created.

Attach could be like some Html/DOCx/RTF document which contain some template filled information based on description, summary and some CF.

May be some one have example how to make this in scriptrunner.

My own solution


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.attachment.CreateAttachmentParamsBean
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager
import java.time.*

def attachmentManager = ComponentAccessor.getAttachmentManager()

def user = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext()?.getUser()

def Reporter = issue.getReporter() as String
def Desc = issue.getDescription()

LocalDateTime CurrentTime =;

def String filename = "1.html"
def Template = """
<!DOCTYPE html>
<title>Some title</title>
<p style="text-align:right">From ${Reporter}</p>

<p style="text-align:right">NAME</p>



<p style="text-align:center"><strong>Some Main TEXT</strong></p>




<p><strong>Date ${CurrentTime}</strong></p>


File f = new File("/tmp/"+filename);


FileWriter fw = new FileWriter("/tmp/"+filename, true)
BufferedWriter bw = new BufferedWriter(fw)
PrintWriter out = new PrintWriter(bw)



def bean = new CreateAttachmentParamsBean.Builder()

Hi @Ilya Stekolnikov 

where did you apply that script ? in send custom email postfunction ?

hi @Samar Elsayed  - i just used it at regular post-function. Script generate attach inside issue.

Thanks @Ilya Stekolnikov 

I can see email template but I dont see the part where you send that email.

why I am asking that is that I want to create an attachment that contain a result from script and then send that attachment by email in postfunction but I dont know how to do that.

ok, i am understand you. In my script i generate attach inside issue. i didn`t send it with e-mail. So you can use my script for generate attach, and add next post-function just for sending e-mail. I think you will understand me, just use this script in post function and you will understand how it works.

@Ilya Stekolnikov  Thank you so much, one last question :


when I use /tmp/ as the path for the attachment , run the script and go to /tmp/ on jira server I can see one file but when I delete the attachment from the issue and rerun my script , I can still see only the same old file there on the server and also when I delete that file from /tmp/ and rerun the script, the new attachment is created successfully in the issue but I cant find it in /tmp/


can you explain to me why this is happening and where can I find these attachments on jira server?

 @Samar Elsayed  May be this one can help you. This script find all attachments in issues from JQL Result and copy them in some folder at server.
