There’s been a delay with being able to reference existing attachments in the issue view. This feature is still a top priority for us and we will continue work on this project as a top priority. For now you can still temporarily click through to the old view to reference attachments in the old view.
Atlassian update - 18 March 2021
Work on attachment referencing in the new issue view has begun! When this feature is released, you’ll be able to reference existing attachments in comments and fields using the editor. This ticket is a top priority we’re currently working on and will be done after we transition everyone to the new issue view.
Make sure to watch this issue for updates on our progress.
When clicking on the files & images button of edit comments in the new issue view it takes you to the upload images instead of browsing the attachments of the issue
Steps to Reproduce
- Click to add a comment on a ticket (on the new issue view)
- Click on add images icon
You should be able to browse the attachments of the issues
The upload images screen appears
There is no current workaround
However, as mentioned in the personal settings page, please note that:
The new issue view is on for all business boards and next-gen projects, so this won't affect them.
