How can I delete attachments from Issue on workflow post-function?

Question in a subject. We're handle sensitive data in attachments and want to purge all of them after reporter will aprove that he received them. Is there an easy way to automate this process?

Download post-function plugin from here.

Haven't tested it yet. Let me know if you have any issues.

I think I can expand my add-on to add new post-function. I will create a issue in my bug tracker

That will be a very nice feature to have!

You can use the Script Runner plugin and code like this in a scripted workflow postfunction.

AttachmentManager attachmentManager = ComponentAccessor.attachmentManager

def attachments = attachmentManager.getAttachments(issue)
attachments.each {attachment ->

Try using ComponentAccessor.getAttachmentManager()

And see similar artical.

Hope this helps you


Thanks, but writing a plugin for this procedure isn't an easy way for me :)

if you need to automate then you have to write postfunction or listener to do that job

else you can delete attachments by using rest api


check this

free plugin is there to delete all attachements at once

That's an interesting plugin but still not a lot difference between manual deleting.

Maybe there is a way to check existence of attachments in Issue on transition?
