I need to preserve Teamcity build artifacts as attachments of a release JIRA ticket (issue). Can I do that with Teamcity Integration plugin for JIRA? Otherwise, what other tools should like use? If there is not such existing tool, how to I create one?
Just a thought.
Jira is not created for storing artifacts. Jira is a tracker. I think the right way for you would be to build the artifact in TeamCity and store artifacts in Artifactory or Nexus Repository.
If you want to handle releases in Jira you should use Versions. You can read more here
Anyway Jira has rich REST API. If you want to attach a file to an issue you could call a REST call from TeamCity and attach a file to an issue. You do not need any plugins.
You can find more info about Jira Rest API here:
