Jama has an attachment widget
that allows an attachment tab to be visible on Jama items. Attachments can be viewed by double-clicking on the attachment, either in the attachment tab of an Item or in the Project > Configure Project
When working with attachments there are many things to take into account.
The attachment widget can be deactivated by an administrator in Jama.
In addition to attaching documents via the attachment widget, it is also possible to attach items through a link in a rich text field. This way, attachments will gain more visibility in the Review Center, where the attachment widget is not present. See here for more information about attachments in the Review Center.
Even if the attachment widget is disabled, images embedded in rich text fields will still be stored on the filesystem.
Size of attachments
There is no limit for file size in attachments in Jama. However, if you're integrating with other software, you will need to know the limits on attachments for the 3rd party software and adapt to them. Note also that Jama is not designed to be a Content Management System, so attachments are not saved in a hierarchy. They may be difficult to keep track of, therefore, we don't recommend using attachments as a storage repository.
Also, Jama has no indicator for how long an upload will take, so on longer uploads the progress is difficult to gauge. As the size of the files goes up, the chances of an upload failing will be more likely. You can add as many attachments as you like, though, and you can remove them at any time.
Although attachments are associated with items, searching for attachments in relation to items is not possible in Jama. It is possible to use search or a filter to find attachments. However, the results will not show what item an attachment is associated with.
A good thing to know is that the content of attached documents will be indexed for search, in Jama. The attachment types text, Word, and PDF files are indexed and searchable through the built-in Jama search feature.
Users with Stakeholder licenses cannot upload attachments of any kind.
