What is the correct procedure of adding attachment to Issue through plugin?

I need a correct procedure of adding an attachment to Issue programmatically. 

When using REST api we need to provide user login and password. I can not get password for any user. 

When using an existing method of creating attachment, which is:

CreateAttachmentParamsBean attachmentParamsBean = new CreateAttachmentParamsBean.Builder(new File(path),
                filename, "text/plain", context.getLoggedInUser(),
        ChangeItemBean bean = ComponentAccessor.getAttachmentManager().createAttachment(attachmentParamsBean);

 Attachment is not seen in issue history log. Can anyone help me with this? Thank you

Hello @Vero Rivas , thank  you for the response,

All of these sources use Basic Auth, where user login and pass are required, but I can not get password from users to include it in the REST request. 

The only functionality I have found is the one that I use from Atlassian SDK. It does not work correctly, because it adds an attachment, but it is not seen in history log. Is there anything else, where I can use the logged in user as an author of the added attachment? 

Thank you
