When attachments are enabled, your users can attach files and screenshots to Jira issues.
Attachments are enabled by default. You can configure the way Jira handles attachments, or disable attachments altogether. If you use a custom permission scheme, you might need to update the permissions to allow users to add and remove attachments.
To allow users to attach a file when creating a new issue, ensure that the Attachment field is not hidden within the field configuration(s) associated with the specific issue type(s).
For all of the following procedures, you must be logged in as a user with the Administer Jira global permission.

Edit attachment permissions
If your project permission scheme has the Create Attachments (and Delete Own Attachments) permission, or if your project uses Jira's built-in Default Permission Scheme, then you don't need to update your project permissions.
If you use a custom permissions scheme, then make sure users have the following permissions:
To attach files to issues: users, groups or project roles must have the Create Attachments permission for the relevant project(s).
To delete their own attached files from issues: users must have the Delete Own Attachments permission for the project.
If you need to update these permissions, use the following steps:
Select > Issues.
Select Permission Schemes. Jira lists all permission schemes in your Jira system and the projects that use each scheme.
For each relevant permission scheme:
Click Permissions next to the scheme you want to update. Jira lists the permissions and users they are granted to.
Next to Create Attachments, click Edit. The Grant permission dialog displays.
In the Permission field, add Delete Own Attachments.
In Grant to, select the user you want to grand the permission to.
