JIRA: Automatically add an attachment to and issue after create


I would like to add an attachment to an issue right after it has been created (in the Create postfunction).

The attachement is copied from a file that is located at a given path in the server's filesystem (In JIRA HOME directory for instance).

This is Jira Server. I know this can be accomplish with a groovy scriptrunner postfunction, but I am not familiar with the API involved in this case.

Thanks in advance,

Hi @Adolfo Casari 

The api you need is the AttachmentManager to create a new attachment.


This can be created using the ComponentAccessor.getAttachmentManager


I’m not sure how familiar you are with groovy and scriptrunner so if you need more detail post specific questions on the thread
