How can I insert an image in a task description or comment using the api?

I can create task, comment and attachment using the api.

But I can't figure out how to insert an attachment in the task description or in a comment.

How can I do this?

I'm also interested in a solution. From what I've found, the default way to do this is found here.  An example description text, in html, as pulled from a ticket created in the ui:

<img src="https://storage.www.wrike.com/filemeta/thumb100/IDENTIFIER.CHARACTERS" />

Specifically, I am interested in using already uploaded attachments in the ticket description. I've tried grabbing the link via the api, but it's not correct. The link requested from the API method "Get Access URL for Attachment" found here returns the following:

{
  "kind": "url",
  "data": [
    {
      "url": "https://storage.www.wrike.com/extfile/WRIKE.INTERNAL.IDENTIFIERS/ATTACHMENT.FORMAT"
    }
  ]
}

Using this link in with the previously mentioned syntax notably does not insert the image in the description. Would love to have an answer to this to speed up several processes.

@Sardana,

As far as I can tell you'd need to upload the file using the API, check the URL via the app, then use that in your code. It's been about two years since I've tried working with this since Wrike has made no further comments on this aside from a help ticket I submitted saying "this is not on our roadmap" so if you find a workaround, it would be appreciated, but it definitely soured me to using wrike for things like automated reports.
