Export/Import attachments

Hello all,

is there any way to export/import attachments of the issues (maybe using the CSV file) from the Project in two different Jira?


Thanks at all for watching this post.

Hi @Daniele Altomonte 

Please have a look at this guide:

You will need the issue key and also need to specify which project the attachment are to be imported to.


Hi @Ismael Jimoh

thanks for the reply.


I have thousands of issues to import and seems that the only way to import the attachments is to insert the URLs 'manually' in the CSV file.


Is there another way, maybe using the same export from Jira?


Thanks and regards,

Hi Daniele,

When you say using the same export from Jira, please note that the Jira export would be in a specific format you decided to export in(JSON, Excel, CSV,etc) after exporting you still need to ensure the data is formatted correctly in a format acceptable by the other Jira instance.

Do a test export on a staging server before attempting this on your production server.


Hi @Ismael Jimoh ,

the available format for the export doesn't allow to export 'Attachment' of the issues (infact it isn't a field that you can select in the Filter Coloumns).

The question is: do you know any way to export Attachment from Jira using the Native Jira export?

Did you find a way to do this?

I'm facing the same problem, the structure in the attachments folder stored on the old jira doesn't match the URL in the exported CSV file.
