Hi David,

We have a improvement request for this: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-13684

Was this improvement request killed?

Hi David.

Not sure if you are still looking but I've developed a plugin called Document Vault (https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.redmoon.jira.documentvault) which is a replacement for JIRA attachments. It gives you the ability to have a blacklist and whitelist of file extensions that can be attached to an Issue, including the use of regular expressions. Any current JIRA attachments can be hidden or included inside the Document Vault panel. You can also restrict access to attachments. I am also open to suggestions for other features.



Hi David,

You can also check out the Attachment Checker for JIRA plugin to see whether it suits your needs.

The fact that the only solutions to this are additional cost add ons says a LOT about Atlassian's view of its customers. 

This is really insulting. 

we need a file type restriction. people with digital sig always get their .p7s attached to tickets.
