Add attachments while creating issue via REST API

Carsten Stepan April 4, 2024

I already read this post Solved: How to attach a file while creating Issue in JIRA ... ( about creating an issue and adding attachments in one go. The proposed solution here was to first create the issue and afterwards add the attachments. This is what I am currently doing.


However from the createmeta-Endpoint of my instance it seems I could also add attachments while creating the issue:

"startAt": 0,
"maxResults": 50,
"total": 16,
"fields": [
"required": false,
"schema": {
"type": "array",
"items": "attachment",
"system": "attachment"
"name": "Anhang",
"key": "attachment",
"hasDefaultValue": false,
"operations": [
"fieldId": "attachment"

Is the configuration from the endpoint whrong or how would do that in a single step? I tried it using the following request in curl:


curl -H "Authorization ..." -X POST -d '{
"fields": {
"project": { "id": "1234" },
"summary": "my summary",
"description": "my description",
"issuetype": { "name": "Story" }

 but unsure how to provide the attchment here (if at all).
