Scriptrunner - provide own images to JIRA (over web resource f.e.) Edited

Deleted user May 03, 2018

Dear community!


What I am trying to do, is including an image over a script fragment. (On the issue overview page).

Using Script Fragments, I can create a new div element with an image in it.

However, I am only able to access the images in



I am trying to find a way to provide images from JIRA_HOME however.

Has anyone an idea how to achieve that?



I am using a web resource (javascript) to add a picture to a specific place, f.e. in the issue view above the issue description, see code below.

(function ($) {
    $(function () {
         * Binding is required for link such as
         * http://localhost:8080/jira/projects/JRA/issues/JRA-4?filter=allopenissues
        JIRA.bind(JIRA.Events.NEW_CONTENT_ADDED, function (event, $context, reason) {
            if (reason === JIRA.CONTENT_ADDED_REASON.pageLoad || reason === JIRA.CONTENT_ADDED_REASON.panelRefreshed) {


    function addLogo() {
        var projectKey = "PROJECTKEY";
        var issue = JIRA.Issue.getIssueKey();
        if (typeof (issue) !== "undefined") {
            var currentProject = issue.substr(0, issue.indexOf('-'));
            if (currentProject == projectKey) {
                $("div.issue-body-content div.issue-main-column").prepend("<img id='theImg' src='/LOGO.png'/>");


Thank you very much!

Best regards,

Hi Aliaksanr,

How are you currently accessing the images in the JIRA_INSTALL_DIR/images directory ?

I might be mistaken in thinking that a simple solution may be to retrieve the image you want using the Groovy method: 

return new File(filePath)

 If I have misunderstood the requirement please let me know and offer some more detail.

My question was not well explained, I have updated it.

In general I do not provide any images from the install directory, as those images are "provided" by Jira itself and can be easily accessed over the web, e.g.:


this picture is located in

/images/icons/priorities/major.svg in the install dir.

I want to include my own pictures in a similar way, but from the HOME directory, as you shouldn't put any custom files in the install dir.




Hi Alex,

I think I understand now. Your web resource will only find images that are placed in the JIRA_INSTALL_DIR/images, and won't work if you attempt to put the images in the HOME directory? 

When you attempt to access them from the HOME directory do you put a fully qualified path? or just the file name, as you have in your js example.

@JohnsonHoward, we can't really use ScriptRunner's web resources to add our own custom resources? When talking about resources I mean my custom images/icons. I.e. I want to use SR's web resources to load only only CSS/JS, but also PNGs.

At this time, I have to store my custom images under JIRA_INSTALL_DIR/atlassian-jira/images and load them via <img scr="/images/my_custom_image.png">.

However, this location is not good in case of future Jira upgrades therefore I'd like to have all my custom images stored somewhere under JIRA_HOME/scripts/resources where I have all my customizations.


As a workaround you can Base64 encode your logo image and put the code directly in javascript.

There are numerous image encoders/decoders online, one of them

The code you put in the javascript looks like this:

<img src='data&colon;image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAAO....' />
