In the "old issue view", whenever users tried to create an attachment from a file straight from the clipboard (by pressing ctrl-v), Jira would open a pop-up and allow users to name the newly created attachment.
In the "New Jira Issue View", Jira will upload the attachment with a pre-defined name (filetype_date_attachmentid).
Furthermore, if the attachment was created using the old view and then viewed in the new view, all attachments will be named the same ("Screenshot-1", for example).
The video below better illustrates the problem:
- While viewing an issue using the old view, upload an attachment straight from the clipboard and give it a name;
- View the same issue using the new view
The name defined in the old view remains while viewing the issue through the new view.
Jira will display a generic name on the attachment.
No current workaround
