Hi @Uttam Kolekar 


The attachments are not stored in the database.  

If you are migrating from one instance to another, the attachments need to be copied over from the older server to the new server. 

Please refer to this page, specifically  "2.4 Back up your attachments and index directories if located outside your JIRA home directory" section :

What if my attachments are located in the Jira home directory?
