You must define an attribute called 'key' for this tag.

I am new to Jelly. I am getting an error in my script:

Could not run script.
Extra Information: [hide]

Error: <JiraJelly xmlns:jira="jelly:com.atlassian.jira.jelly.enterprise.JiraTagLib">
Exception: org.apache.commons.jelly.MissingAttributeException: null:10:0: You must define an attribute called 'key' for this tag.
java.io.PrintWriter@13ed5baf

The issue is being updated in the database, and the comment can be seen.

File does not get attached.

Inserted date is a custom datetime field. It does not get updated either. What is going wrong?

&lt;JiraJelly xmlns:jira="jelly:com.atlassian.jira.jelly.enterprise.JiraTagLib"&gt;

Yes, as called out on the documentation for this element, https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Jelly+Tags#JellyTags-jira%3AAttachFile

key is a required attribute that points to the issue key to add the attachment to.

Yeah, silly it is different than addComment, which uses issue-key for the same purpose.
