Yes, JIRA writes the temporary files to the temp directory. It stores the temporary files such as import / export files, attachment files and indexes in this /temp directory.

Hope this answers it!

I have changed the location of temp directory by editing file. But i'm unable to verify whether it has been changed or not. Any suggesions.
