External Storage Options for JIRA Attachments

We are having a production JIRA with issues upto 2 lacs. The attachment directory specifically is consuming lot of disk space, hence we are planning to move our production JIRA_HOME directory to external location.


Can someone please help me the best approach.

It is not advisable to move your entire JIRA_HOME onto external storage as this may have a noticeable performance impact on your Jira instance.

To store your attachments on external storage, I would recommend to move only the attachments folder and then create a symbolic link from the JIRA_HOME to where you have moved the attachments.
