Is there an api to get the attachment using attachment url?

I am having an application. I want to read the attachment.

What's is that application of yours ? Please give some more details. What is this url ?

One way to get it is using REST. The response contains download URL: https://docs.atlassian.com/software/jira/docs/api/REST/latest/#d2e2868

my application is GWT. But the rest api provides only the meta data of the attachment but i need the content of the attachment

Also CORS problem exists before using rest

You can fetch the attachment over REST, as Boris has said. And it's no good saying "CORS problem exists" without telling us what you think CORS means or what the problem is.

The metadata in the REST response contains content field:

And you can use this url to retrieve the contents.

 "content": "http://www.example.com/jira/attachments/10000"
