Yeah, there have been changes with Trello's attachment API so I believe all attachment URLs are going to be private. Maybe try this power-up https://trello.com/power-ups/60d93bb780ee244d5d2b1edd/external-share

It's paid, but only like $1 p/month.

It looks like the attachments in the shared cards had been migrated to the new structure and it is affected by the new authentication requirements. 

Check out the attachment on this shared card

@milynnus Ah you're right! That would make sense. I guess the only option around it would be to add your client to the board as an observer, or create a separate board for the client and just copy over the relevant cards that you need to share with them. This would require your client to create a login, but if they're only on one board, they'll be considered a single board guest and won't be billed.

The only other option I can think of at the moment is to upload the file to a cloud-based storage (like dropbox) and share this link with the customer.

Is there no other way to share faster?

Not that I know of

I have asked about this in a different threat.  Basically, the answer was that the new upgrade disabled that feature.  Like in your case, this creates a serious problem in our workflow and it appears that there is no work around. The suggestion was to downloads it and move it to Google Drive to share it, which, of course, is rather problematic - the point of Trello is to have all parts organized in one card, not to spread it out over other solutions. 

I hope this decision is reevaluated.  For now I am looking for a different solution though the export of Trello to other apps is problematic.

Adam Cao the creator of external share has updated it to support the new authentication. Have not tried it but is good news to share.
