Downloading attachments via jira module in python

In it states you can get the attachment resource via the call: JIRA.attachment(id)

However, once you get the resource, is there a way to actually download the attachment?

The object returnet by jira.attachment(id) method has itself a method called get, did you try it?

Another way is to user the property content to get the JIRA url to the attachment and get it through a http request.

I have tried the same thing, the http route just returns a garbage 30 kb csv file and I couldn't find a GET method for JIRA? 

You can do it with request like this:

response = requests.get('filepath', auth=('user', 'pass'), stream=True)
with open("attachments/"+filename, 'wb') as out_file:
	shutil.copyfileobj(response.raw, out_file)
del response
