These JavaScript errors are often associated with browsers attempting to make cross-domain requests. Is this base URL - http://usu-jira.synaptics.com:8080 - exactly the same baseURL they are using to access JIRA? Is there any mismatch in the host name, the protocol (HTTP/HTTPS) or the port? Is that the base URL set in JIRA's General Configuration admin page?

Hi Penny,

Yes, the baseURL is the same. No mismatch on host name or protocol or port. Yes, baseURL is set under General Configuration.

Does this happen for any file types or only the ones you have put in your description?
Do these users have the appropriate permissions to create attachments in the projects permission scheme? (See under Project > Administer Project > Permissions > Attachment Permissions)

Hi Mick, The user has reported this for these specific types. I believe it is not restricted to the file type. However, I will check with the user. The Permission scheme has the appropriate permissions - we are using the OOTB permission scheme
