Is it possible to add attachment to comments via rest api?

I need to add attachments to the comments to a jira issue using the api and can't find any documentation about it.

Would like to know if it's possible. Thank you

Greivin, Your attachment is going to stored within the issue and not the comment.  This might help with adding an attachment:

The nice little link in the comment to the attachment can be added using this format [^Attachment Name.ext]

Hope this helps. 


Hi Peter,

That would works, what we need is to keep the the context of which attachments were provided within the comment

Thank you for your help.
