Create issue and immadiatly attach it a file, using jelly service.


I'm using jelly service to create new issues on JIRA.

For some issues, i need to attach files on them just after their creation. (commands for creation and file attachement are consecutives)

I saw that there is the fonction jira:AttachFile, but it need the PKEY of the issue to work, and as i want to attach a file immediatly after create an issue, i don't have the PKEY.

So my question is : is it possible to create an issue and attach it a file immaediatly after with jelly ?

like :

<jira:CreateIssue project-key="TEST" assignee="some.guy" reporter="some.guy"
 </jira:CreateIssue >
 <jira:AttachFile key="here i get the PKEY of the new issue above" filepath="/some/path" option=”add”>

Hi Yannis,

I'm sorry to say that it isn't possible to do this on the OnDemand platform because Jelly scripts are a restricted function, so you cannot do this with an OnDemand instance but it would be possible to do this with a downloaded installation of JIRA:

All the best,

Hi john,

first i want to thanks you because as a beginner user of this forum i didn't understand what was the onDemand/Download tag when i created this question.

And my question was for a downloaded installation of JIRA. (is it possible to change this on this topic?)

So you said that it's possible to do this, on a downloaded installation , can you give me more details about it ?

all the best,
