We'd like to use the REST API to create new issues, but would like to have the ability to have attachments (for screenshots). Currently we are using the mailer to achieve this, but it's not pretty.

There are some requests for such a feature on redmine but there doesn't seem to be any plan to implement it.

Having this would more than likely be the killer feature for us to switch from redmine to the ChiliProject.

So are you using the mailer to send attachments to an issue?

Yep. But the mailer feels too clunky, it's basically a giant string along with an attachment. I haven't used it, but I'm pretty sure this would be able to facilitate the client sending multipart data.

Okay, just wanted to make sure I understood what you were doing now. I agree a REST API for attachments would be good. You might be able to use the Issues REST API but it's been changed a lot recently so I don't know if attachments are supported.
