Common location to upload documents for a project in JIRA Edited

Hello, We have a document which was uploaded to all the user stories. But if there is any update to that document, it is becoming difficult to update the document for all the user stories. 

It would be helpful if JIRA has a central repository for each project to upload the files for reference with revision history. So that we can refer to the file link in the user story instead of re uploading the document multiple times.

This will solve our problem. Please suggest or improve. Thank you.

JIRA is issue-focussed and doesn't really see a project as anything more than a container for issues.   It's not a document repository, it's for tracking issues.

Most people simply use Confluence for project related documentation. 

If you don't have a shared documentation system, then another  way to do soemthing like this is to have a "project issue" in the project and use that to attach files to, but I don't believe the "history" stuff with attachments is good enough for what you need.

Try the Documents for JIRA add-on. It may be exactly what you look for.

Thanks Aron. I will give a try with that add-on.
