Link to an attachment in an issue

dennish_dcsorg_com April 7, 2020

Is there a way to generate a link that someone can click on that would send them direct to an attachment in an issue instead of having to go to the issue and then click on the attachment to view it? I have issues with PDFs attached and I'd like to be able to send links to the PDFs direct.

This doesn't work in Jira Cloud and the new issue view.

You can see the direct link in the REST API, or you can use a tool like this (Chrome plugin).

Hi @dennish_dcsorg_com 

I believe you can go to the issue, right-click to copy the link, and send that to people.  Have you tried that?

Best regards,

Bill

I did in Firefox and Chrome. it doesn't give me the copy link option.

Hi Dennish,

Very curious...  I just tried it again in Chrome (81.0.4044.92), creating a new story with a PDF attachment, and I was able to successfully copy the link.  When I opened the link in another browser tab, it downloaded the document and then I opened it successfully.

When you right-click on the attachment, what are you seeing?

Back, forward, save as, print, cast, translate to English, view page source and inspect

Ah, let's try this.  When you look at the attachment, note there is a document-looking graphic in the middle of a white background.  Right-click on the document-looking graphic rather than the background.

When I do that, I see a different right-click context menu than when I right-click on the white background.

Strange, I get the same list of options if I RC on the doc "icon"

@dennish_dcsorg_com  -- I'm out of ideas on this one.  Hopefully someone else who sees this can pitch in.
