The attachment section in the JIRA Issue View is missing. 


The com.atlassian.jira.jira-view-issue-plugin:attachmentmodule pluginkey is set to false in pluginstate table during an upgrade.


  1. Shutdown JIRA

  2. Run the following query to identify the status of the pluginkey:

    SELECT * FROM pluginstate WHERE pluginkey = 'com.atlassian.jira.jira-view-issue-plugin:attachmentmodule';
  3. If the pluginenabled is false, set it back to true

    DELETE from pluginstate WHERE pluginkey='com.atlassian.jira.jira-view-issue-plugin:attachmentmodule';

    Always back up your data before performing any modification to the database. If possible, try your modifications on a test server.

  4. Restart JIRA
