Attaching a Screenshot in JIRA, a user must go to More Actions and select the the Attach Screenshot link. However, on linux machine, this feature is not available.


1. Enable the screenshot applet

To enable the "Attach Screenshot" feature on your JIRA instance, add the following line on the file, which is located on the <JIRA-HOME> directory.

In a new JIRA installations, file may not initially exist and if so, you will need to create it manually. Create the file inside <JIRA-HOME> folder.

2. Restart JIRA instance

Once you have modified the file, restart your JIRA instance for the changes to take effect.
