How to validate the number of attachments on a screen in jira5.0.5

Currently, I am using TemporaryAttachment API to get the number of attachments on a screen. The problem however is that when someone attaches a file on jira screen and unchecks the check box to the left of it, there is a file in temporary attachments collection but no file is attached to the issue. Effectively, this practice can bypass my validator. Is there any possible way to make a fullproof validation.

Thanks, works perfectly for me.

Map<String, ModifiedValue> modifiedValueMap = mIssue.getModifiedFields();

ModifiedValue modifiedAttachmentValue = modifiedValueMap.get("attachment");

List<String> modifiedAttachmentList = (List<String>) modifiedAttachmentValue.getNewValue();





Glad to be of any help.

Hello All, 

Kindly help me for this problem, i am not able to get screen attachment name ..............



Hi Smruti,

The links Radu shared doesn't work so could you paste the code you wrote?

One more favour, I also try to use a validator which checks whether an attachement is uploaded or not while creating an issue. I mean I don't want users to create an issue without an attachment.

Hi Dolanbay,

I have posted the code which worked for me below Radu's links. You can add the validator at create step for your requirement. Adding the validator at create will not allow anyone to create an issue without attachment.
