Add Attachment to JIRA using JIRA Python

Im using jira python to add an attachment to the issue as below

from jira.client import JIRA

options = {

'server': 'our_server'


jira = JIRA(options=options,basic_auth=('u_name', 'pswrd'))

issue = jira.issue('issue_id')




However Im seeing a 405. I am able to authenticate and get issues, create issues. However adding an attachment is not working

Wondering if this is due to protection against XSRF attacks
In order to protect against XSRF attacks, because this method accepts multipart/form-data, it has XSRF protection on it. This means you must submit a header of X-Atlassian-Token: nocheck with the request, otherwise it will be blocked.
