- Both Customers and Service Management agents are unable to view/download attachments when opening the issue via SD Portal.
- Agents are able to view attachments when using the Jira interface.

The following is seen on atlassian-jira.log:

failed to check if user can view attachment with reason: The request type you are trying to view does not exist.


The issue doesn't have a valid request type. The request type has deleted or the issue was moved from another SD project, which the Issue / Request type association doesn't match the current SD project.


Set a valid request type for the issue. Eventually, it will require an issue type change as well.
