Screen capture within Jira

I would like to know for the users of JIRA for the company, I would like to know if there is a feature, plugin, or way within JIRA bug tracking that part of the package that I have  or a free plugin  that can allow me  to capture the screen without using print screen and saving to paint 


Please let me know

Hi Sam,

Yes, JIRA allows to attach screenshots to issues:

This feature has been re-worked in JIRA 6.2.5 and works in mostly browsers: Safari is the only browser, which is not supported.


You can just:

  • Take a screenshot with print screen button
  • Hit 'Paste' (Ctrl + V on Windows)

If you are using JIRA 6.2.4 or older, the plug-in that supports this functionality in JIRA is available on Marketplace for free.


Atlassian also has a paid JIRA Add-on called JIRA Capture. It supports screenshot capturing, annotations, rapid issue reporting with attachments and adds test sessions functionality into JIRA. See this page for more information about JIRA Capture.


Hope this helps.
