Hi @Sneha Gole 

For your requirement, I assume you are using a Listener to trigger the comment update.

You could try something like this:-

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def issue = event.issue

def loggedInUser = ComponentAccessor.jiraAuthenticationContext.loggedInUser
def attachmentManager = ComponentAccessor.attachmentManager
def commentManager = ComponentAccessor.commentManager

def attachments = attachmentManager.getAttachments(issue)

def latestAttachment = attachments.findAll {
}.sort { it.created }.last()

def commentBody = "file has been added to the comment"
commentManager.create(issue,loggedInUser, "[^${latestAttachment.filename}] ${commentBody}", false)

Please note, this sample code is not 100% exact to your environment. Hence, you will need to make the required modifications.

Below is a print screen of the listener configuration:-


Below are a few print screens of the tests:-

1) First, when the issue is created, no attachments are added, as shown below.


2) Once an attachment is added, refresh the page, and you will see the comment is automatically added, as shown below.


3) Adding other pdf attachments, and the comment is updated as well as shown below:-


I hope this helps to solve your question. :)

Thank you and Kind Regards,


thank you so much for your effort   @Ram Kumar Aravindakshan _Adaptavist_  it work like wonders !!!!


@Ram Kumar Aravindakshan _Adaptavist_ comment with lastest attachment is added by every issue update. How to restrict this listener only to add atachment event?

Hi @Arkadiusz Baka

To answer your question, this is not directly possible as there are no existing events that monitor when an Attachment is added.

You will need to create a custom Event for this.

Please refer to this community post for more information.

Thank you and Kind Regards,

Hi @Sneha Gole ,

What is the def for variable fnm? Your code tries to append fnm and the string.

hii @Niranjan ,

thanks for quick reply ,

i have pass file path in fnm (/opt/atlassian/jira/temp/EMPLOYEEE.pdf)

@Sneha Gole - Should you not be using ComponentAccessor.attachmentManager.createAttachment  as you are actually creating an attachment ? 

@Niranjan ,

i am attaching pdf file to issue and i want to create comment ___ pdf file is attached .


How can I implement this on JSM Cloud?
