"We couldn't save your comment"

Consistently over the last week, I've been having issues creating tickets or adding comments to tickets when screenshots are involved. Before this week, I could paste (from clipboard) a screenshot directly into the ticket body or a comment on the ticket with no issues. Now when I try I keep getting these warning messages saying that my entry couldn't be saved due to formatting. Has formatting changed that much? This is such a huge part of how we use JIRA with our teams - I need to be able to add these images and preferably without having to save them all to my computer to upload. 

Error message: 

We couldn't save your comment

It might be empty or have invalid formatting. If you copy-pasted, try removing formatting and adding it directly to the editor.

Hi Morgan - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

I would open a support ticket with Atlassian - sounds like a bug may have developed. 

Thanks! Looks like I'll need to get my admin to reach out on this one.

Let us know the result here so we can close this one out.  :-)

Morgan, I had this same issue and the problem was the name of the screenshot containing invalid characters. Just renamed to something like "test" and it works.

Regards.

Hi Omolara - I am glad Lourenco could help you out! Can you click on the Accept answer button above to close this one out? Thanks!

I can't see the 'accept answer` button

No worries - I will hit it for you to close out.

Cheers!

Do I have to rename the images in order to post them in a comment? That's quite a nuisance. 

It turns out that you can only upload images or documents that are less than 10MB! It's unfortunate that the error is so vague but after I found that out I've had no further issues and have been using Google Drive for any videos I need to attach that are larger than that.

Another option is to do what we do and that is use a third party vendor called Simple Cloud Files. It is available in the Atlassian Marketplace.

I have the same problem, please help

Hey Donny, 

It turns out that you can only upload images or documents that are less than 10MB! It's unfortunate that the error is so vague but after I found that out I've had no further issues and have been using Google Drive for any videos I need to attach that are larger than that. 

 

Hope this helps.

What's weird is that not even Google Drive fixes it

 

If I upload a video to Drive that's more than 30MB, then try attaching it to the ticket using the Drive Integration, it's the SAME issue!

 

So my question is: how can I attach Google Drive videos greater than 30Mb to my tickets?

Hmm - I haven't tried with the integration, I just add a link to the drive folder and have no issues that way
