Hello!

This might be of a help to you: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-6931

We have that Feature request open, but unfortunately it seems it won't be implemented for now. At least in a near future not, but the comment from my colleague Matt in that feature is worth of trying:

"One potentially implementation would be to write a filter plugin that intercepts multipart file upload requests and rejects them based on the name or contents of each file."

I'm not a developer myself, so I might not be able to help you in this request, but I can give you some directions with this idea. I'll leave this question open as other Devs might see this and know how to implement this function.

Cheers,

Rodrigo
