This section of our documentation refers to the public Java API available in Smart Attachments for Jira. Java API is available starting from Smart Attachments for Jira 2.1.0. 

Please, note that Java API methods are not exposed in Smart Attachments versions older than 2.1.0. For older versions of the app, use REST API instead.

In this section, you will find examples of the most common cases of usage of the public Java API available in Smart Attachments for Jira. If you need the whole Java API documentation for the app, click the button below.

Please note that we provide this public Java API to solve use cases not included in the app functionality available. Our support doesn't include help in writing scripts with the app public Java API. Our Support Team may assist with particular requests regarding writing scripts at our sole consent.

Create a new category scheme with categories

import com.atlassian.jira.user.util.UserUtil

// Initializing the app components

@WithPlugin("com.stiltsoft.jira.smart-attachments")
SmartAttachmentsFacade facade = ScriptRunnerImpl.getPluginComponent(SmartAttachmentsFacade)
UserManager userManager = ComponentAccessor.getUserManager()

// Specifying the user on the behalf of who the scheme will be created
def currentUser = userManager.getUserByName("admin")

// Specifying the name of a new category scheme
def scheme = facade.createScheme("New Scheme", currentUser)

// Specifying names of categories within the category
def categoryDocuments = facade.generateNewConfigCategory("Documents")
def categoryScreenshots = facade.generateNewConfigCategory("Screenshots")
def categoryLogs = facade.generateNewConfigCategory("Logs")
def categoryPrototypes = facade.generateNewConfigCategory("Prototypes")

// Creating new categories within the category scheme
scheme.categories.add(categoryDocuments)

Copy all the attachments from one issue and add them to a linked issue

This example illustrates copying all the attachments from one issue and adding them to a linked issue with preserving the attachment category.

Please note that this script has wo variables. These are "STP-1" and "STP-2". You will need to replace these values with the following issue keys from your Jira projects:

  • use the issue key of the source issue (from which you are copying) instead of "STP-1"

  • use the issue key of the target issue (to which you are copying) instead of "STP-2"

// Copying the source issue attachments to the target issue within the same project
List<Attachment> attachmentsFromSourceIssue = new ArrayList<>(attachmentManager.getAttachments(sourceIssue))
List<Attachment> attachmentsFromTargetIssue = new ArrayList<>(attachmentManager.getAttachments(targetIssue))

attachmentsFromSourceIssue.each {
