Creating a Custom Field in Jira with Forge for File Attachments

Hello everyone,

Is it possible to create a custom field with Forge for Jira to store and manage file attachments?

Thank you.

I believe it’s not possible. According to the documentation, the available field types are as follows:

  • string - values represent plain strings. JQL offers autocomplete and exact comparison.
  • number - values represent numbers (double-precision 64-bit IEEE 754 floating points).
  • user - values represent users identified by Atlassian account IDs. The field behaves like any other user field in Jira when you interact with it in the UI or the REST API.
  • group - values represent groups identified by names. The field behaves like any other group field in Jira when you interact with it in the UI or the REST API.
  • object - values are arbitrary JSON objects. See below for more details.
  • datetime - values are strings that represent dates with time and timezone. The field behaves like any other datetime field in Jira when you interact with it in the UI or the REST API. However, if milliseconds are provided, they are ignored.
  • date - values are strings that represent dates. The field behaves like any other date field in Jira when you interact with it in the UI or the REST API.

But you might consider a solution by creating a custom field type. documentation
