Dear Naveen,

When adding an attachment someone will be able to add a comment aswell, so what exactly do you want? Do you want the field to be optional/required.. or?

Friendly Regards,


Thanks  Jeremy for the quickest reply

Whenever an file is attached to an issue in Jira in that issue it will automatically create a comment with the name of attachment .

I have the same issue.

This is a real deal breaker and quite old school

You can add multiple images or screen shots into issues BUT your comments are separate.

Therefore the developer does not know to which image your comment relates. 

It should be organised as image/comment/image/comment if required, similar to slack
