I can't find a method in the API allowing me to pass the actual content of the attachments to JIRA

We are trying to integrate JIRA With SysAid.

When I looked into the API, I could only find one method called "setAttachmentsName(String[] names)", which I assume allow me to pass the attachments names I want to send to JIRA.

The issue is that I can't find a method in the API allowing me to pass the actual content of the attachments to JIRA.

Check out the AttachmentManager. The various createAttachment methods give you different options.

Some of the code is in the class files, some of the code is in the Javascripts. You should inspect the source code when you're trying to attach files to JIRA.

You basically need to replicate the attachment form and grab the proper form parameters in your class file.

agree with @jobin! well createAttachment() in ComponentAccessor.getAttachmentManager can help you out for your problem!

and using some java Filehandeling.
