Working with Attachments in Jira

This page documents features in Salesforce & Jira Cloud Connector regarding attachments, especially for Jira users.

For an overview of how attachments work between Jira and Salesforce, visit Working with Attachments.

Prerequisites:

  • The attachment synchronization feature must be turned on by an admin through a Connection setting called Synchronize Attachments.

Pushing Attachments from Jira to Salesforce

You can tell Jira when to push attachments to Salesforce:

  • Automatically - when a file is attached to Jira, push it to Salesforce immediately. To achieve this, the association must be set to Auto Push.
  • Manually - after attaching files to Jira, click on the Push button available for the association.

When a push is triggered:

  • All attachments in Jira will be pushed to Salesforce, regardless attached prior to or after the association.
  • Attachment already existing in Salesforce (same name) will not be pushed to Salesforce again.
  • The read-only association is not affected.

Pulling Attachments from Salesforce to Jira

From inside Jira, you can retrieve attachments from Salesforce:

Similar to push:

  • All attachments in Salesforce will be pulled to Jira, regardless attached to Salesforce prior to or after the association.
  • Attachment already exists in Jira (same name) will not be pulled to Jira.
  • The read-only association is not affected.

Working with Salesforce Files

The Connector is compatible with the Salesforce Files feature.

To use the Connector with Salesforce Files, the Create Salesforce Attachment as Files setting must first be turned on by an admin through a Connection setting called Synchronize Attachments.

Take note that there is a 25MB file size limitation whether you're synchronizing from or to Salesforce.
