Does Confluence have the ability to allow an approval mechanism to users downloading file?
Example, user hits a request to download button or something and then a administrator is notified via e-mail to go and review the request and approve/reject.
I just tried testing that out with a peer and they simply got a permission error when attempting to access the link. No e-mail was sent to me, the owner of the locked down page. Is there additional configuration needed on the locked down page?
Correct - we secure to the page level, not the document level.
Understood. But is there functionality that can be used to send an e-mail to the owner of the page, when unprivileged user attempts to access it like what @Mihai Schwarzdescribes above?
@Matthew Mallardin the newer Confluence versions if you provide a user the link to a page that doesn't have access, it will send in an email to the owner of the page and the space administrator.
I understand @Mihai Schwarz's suggestion by creating a restricted sub page that parses out the files however I am unaware of the "approval request" notification.
Restricted users will see a message that says "page doesn't exist or you don't have permissions".
~Confluence Server 6.6.1
Ahh ok. I'm working on upgrading our Confluence instance now actually so I'll look forward to that in the new version. I've been stuck with the task of upgrading from 5.8.5 to the latest and greatest. It's going to be quite a journey haha.
Thanks for the insight everyone.
@Jonathan Smithindeed you need to install Page Approval: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/apps/144/page-approval-for-confluence?hosting=server&tab=overview
