Can I get the attachments which are uploaded in the transition using Scriptrunner?

Hi ,

I have a transition screen between 2 statuses, say Testing to Done, and I have attachments field in that screen. I need to get the attachments(one or more) which were uploaded  at the time of transition and clone those attachments to another issue.

As of now , I was able to get all the attachments which were present in that issue(Using Script-runner). But I need to clone only those attachments which are uploaded at the time of transition.

Please help me out.

Thanks and regards,

Hi Sahrudai, 

I have the same situation now. We have a transition between the statuses Development & Cross check and we would like to see the attachments which are uploaded in the status Development and we need to read out those attachments while fill the data in the transition . 

So you mentioned you were able to bring the attachments to the transition screen by using script runner . Please let me know how you configure this?

Hi Venkat,


What I meant was, I was able to get the attachments via API in the scriptrunner code, that too all the attachments, not which were added in the particular status.




Hi Sahrudai, thank you for your response. So if we want to get all the attachments in the issue on the transition screen then how do we do that? Could you please guide me to meet my requirement ?

Hi Sahrudai,

I can confirm that it is only possible to get all attachments on an issue and not just the ones added in a transition screen.

The reason for this is that Atlassian only provides the Get attachment metadata API located here in order to get all atatchments and ScriptRunner for Jira Cloud can only use the public rest API's which Atlassian provides.

This means all you could do would be to clone all attchments and then make a calls to the  Delete Attachment API here to delete the attachments which are not required.
