Jira is not an SSH server or client, nor is it a file server.

What are you trying to achieve with ssh and Jira?  I want to understand what you're trying to get to, not what you think the solution might be.

@Nic Brough _Adaptavist_  WE are planning to migrate few projects from one server to another server and attachments size  is huge (GB) . So looking for the possibilities to transfer files as the regions are different and company provided file is restricted to certain GB for a month.

Ok, you absolutely do not want to do file transfers with Jira.  It's not good with large files.

What you really mean is that you want to take attachments from one Jira server to another.  Jira attachments are done as simple uncompressed files living on the file system, and you can use any server-to-server transfer system that suits you.

This is more a question for your networking people - they can tell you what the best methods are for your networks (and there really are a lot of options - temporarily mounting shared storage on both servers, scripting ssh or scp calls, firing up a web server on source and scraping files off it with wget, copying everything on to a removable hard drive and physically taking it to the other site, rsync, and and and...)

We can't really tell you what the best options are.

@Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ Thank you so much for the details, would check with network team.
