      Atlassian Update – 8 April 2019

      Hi everyone,

      Thank you for sharing your use cases with us for both Jira and Jira Service Desk. After investigating the problem, we have found that Jira properly links to images in email messages.

      The three main causes for the images not rendering properly are all related to the fact that in order to view attachments in Jira, the user has to be authorized:

      • the user viewing the email message is not logged in, as described in the knowledge base article: Images not showing in Jira email notifications 
      • the user's email client doesn't allow to set up a session in Jira for authentication purposes
      • the configured outgoing mail server caches images, but is unable to authorize in Jira, and caches the 403 responses (e.g. when Gmail with the default settings is used as the outgoing mail server)

      To allow displaying image attachments without the need to authorize, we initially created a feature suggestion JRASERVER-69065 to embed images directly in the emails. But,  because the current issue has history, votes and watchers, we will track work here and close the suggestion as duplicate. Please note that the solution creates a potential security vulnerability, e.g. if an attacker starts attaching multiple big files to comments.

      The issue is now transitioned to 'Long Term Backlog' status. The status means that the issue will not be fixed within the next 6 months. At the same time, it is still being monitored by Atlassian for any updates and considered a potential target within the next 6-9 months. Please do not consider this a deadline to fix the bug, but rather as an estimated timeline.

      Kind regards,
