Is there any way we can find out the jira issue id from the attachment id,

We having a public Jira projects for customers and if there is any attachments are added which having sensitive data in it which should not be visible to customer.

Our security team are identifying such attachments and providing the direct links as shown below :


It does not showing which issue this attachment is belongs to so that Jira admins can update the same.

@Abhijeet Kale You can try the below steps to get the issue-key from attachment id

  • Identify the issue-id from the attachment-id from the database
SELECT * FROM fileattachment where id = '12471219'

You will get an issue-id from the query result like below

Then find the issue-key using issue-id, you will get the details as shown in screenshot below

Let me know in case of any issues.

Thanks @Sagar Mahajan I am able to get the issue-key from attachment id from above steps.

If you go this route, use some joins to go ahead and get all the information from the database.

select as attachmentId,concat(p.pkey,'-',issuenum) as issueNum, filename
from fileattachment a
left join jiraissue i on = a.issueid
left join project p on = i.project
where in (30604,26718,30700)

There is no way to know what issue a file is attached to from just its id.  The id is a simple unique number which has no relationship to the issue.

Your security team should be looking at attachments visibility by checking the issues, not the direct urls, otherwise they're just wasting your time and theirs.

If you have direct database access or a scripting app such as ScriptRunner you could tackle it from that angle.
