@heena, @Nic Brough [Adaptavist] Yes this can be achievable using latest JIRA API.
I've did the same in following way:
CreateAttachmentParamsBean.Builder capbBuilder = new CreateAttachmentParamsBean.Builder(); capbBuilder.file(newAttachment); capbBuilder.filename(fileName); capbBuilder.author(loggedInUser); capbBuilder.copySourceFile(true);//Set this property true and you're free to attach the same file to multiple issues. capbBuilder.issue(mIssue); CreateAttachmentParamsBean capb = capbBuilder.build(); attachmentManager.createAttachment(capb);
I hope this will help somebody else whoever looking for same implementation.
You can't. JIra's attachment system doesn't support anything like that, it's a simple flat "this file the user provides is attached to this issue, and stored on the file system underneath that issue". If you want to attach the same file to several issues, you have to attach it to each one separately. Obviously, these will now be totally independent separate files.
If you want to reuse the same file without spawning copies, then you need to store the file somewhere and link to it instead of attaching it. Jira's "web link" is quite handy for that (although the file will not behave like an attachment), and can even link back to another JIRA issue
