Limit number of attachments per issue


We use JIRA for students to submit assignments to be marked.

Ideally we would like the user to add the maximum of 1 attachement per issue.

Is there a way to restrict the number of attachments and hopefully as a project or workdlow setting rather than globally?

many thanks

The documentation bellow may help you configuring the attachments:



I think that you can do it using one of the scripting plugins like jjupin or script runner.

With jjupin it easy to do it but this plugin is paid.
