Use an attachment in an issue

Add attachments to issues and provide additional context to your team’s work. Jira Work Management supports several attachment types, including images, documents, videos, spreadsheets and PDFs.

View all attachments in a project

We’re slowly rolling out the Attachments view, so don’t worry if you can’t see it yet.

To view all attachments in a project, select Attachments from the project view navigation. Any attachment that has been added to an issue within your project will appear here. This means you won’t need to search through issues to find a specific attachment.
