File upload permissions

Hello,

is there any possibility to set users permissions for uploading/downloading files?

  • Only allow upload or download via app
  • Restrict via web browser from uploading and or downloading
  • Restrict by user

If there is no such features, it it possible to develop?

Hi, @dm123

The file sharing permission is limited to the following configuration in the File Sharing and Downloads:

  • Allow File Sharing: When false, disables file sharing on the server. All file and image uploads on messages are forbidden across clients and devices, including mobile.
  • Allow File Uploads on Mobile (E20 only): When false, disables file uploads on mobile apps. All file and image uploads on messages are forbidden across clients and devices, including mobile.
  • Allow File Downloads on Mobile (E20 only): When false, disables file downloads on mobile apps. Users can still download files from a mobile web browser.

To answer the question that you have here:

  • Only allow upload or download via app - Limited to mobile app on E20
  • Restrict via web browser from uploading and or downloading - Limited to mobile app on E20
  • Restrict by user - Not available

You can raise a suggestion on the Mattermost Uservoice to allow other users to share their thoughts and cast their votes on this.
