Look for "attachments" and POST in the API doc. You'll need to call the post once for each attachment https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/REST/latest/

Thanks Nic Brough,

I tried that but i'm getting error internal server error.

Please see the code & tell me what i'm doing wrong in this.

<script type="text/javascript">

function Upload() {

jQuery.support.cors = true;

var param2 = "{\"file\": \"D:\Vaibhav\Jira_Rest_Api\Uploads\LoanE1.jpg\", \"mimeType\": \"image/jpeg\",\"content:\":\"D:\Vaibhav\Jira_Rest_Api\Uploads\LoanE1.jpg\"}";

$.ajax({

type: "POST",

url: "http://10.0.1.62:1001/rest/api/2/issue/Demo-88/attachments",

dataType: "json",

processData: false,

data: param2,

contentType: "Content-type: multipart/form-data",

success: function (data) {

alert("Data Loaded auth: " + data);

window.open("jira_Login1.htm");

},

error: function (jqXHR, textStatus, errorThrown) {

alert('error in uploading:: ' + errorThrown);

}

});

}

</script>

You don't seem to be iterating through the attachments, just throwing them all at it in one go. Can you try one at a time?

Yes i tried for only single attachment. I did that by jquery.I pasted the code above . But still getting "internal server error".

Is this server problem or mine don't know?

Um, it looks like your code is setting param1 to a set of files, but then posting the whole set in one go. Could you try posting a single file?

I'm posting only single file ....

till now i did not try for multiple attachments.

Please Suggest me, why i'm unable to send attachment with Rest API.

It is giving me "Internal Server Error" when i try to send attachment.

Here I'm trying to send single attachment when creating issue.

Code is given below.

.

<script type="text/javascript">

function Upload() {

jQuery.support.cors = true;

var param2 = "{\"file\": \"D:\Vaibhav\Jira_Rest_Api\Uploads\LoanE1.jpg\", \"mimeType\": \"image/jpeg\",\"content:\":\"D:\Vaibhav\Jira_Rest_Api\Uploads\LoanE1.jpg\"}";

$.ajax({

type: "POST",

url: "http://10.0.1.62:1001/rest/api/2/issue/Demo-88/attachments",

dataType: "json",

processData: false,

data: param2,

contentType: "Content-type: multipart/form-data",

success: function (data) {

alert("Data Loaded auth: " + data);

window.open("jira_Login1.htm");

},

error: function (jqXHR, textStatus, errorThrown) {

alert('error in uploading:: ' + errorThrown);

}

});

}

</script>
