Hi @heiko.maag ! 
Welcome to the Community! 
It is impossible because there is no exact space permission on adding “inline comments”.

Can you share the problem that you are trying to solve? What is your business case?

Hi @heiko.maag and welcome,

I think that on cloud it's not possible to just disable inline comments. What you could do, on a space level though, is to disable comments... for everyone. :/ 

Hi @Alex Koxaras _Relational_ @Alexander Bondarev

Thanks for your help and quick response...

I have this "problem" because we want to open the pages to the public in readonly mode. And as far as I can see, even an anonymous user can leave an inline-comment. Thus you have potentially high support efforts to keep the pages "clean".

In my eyes, its a strange decision to make it very easy to disable the comment section below the content, while keeping it impossible to turn off inline-comments. Can you explain the idea behind that? But anyway.... Thats the way it is, I guess.... :-/


I'm currently running into the same problem whilst setting up an anonymous space - Did you ever find a workaround for this?


Not sure if you ever got a response or not but after testing and digging deeper... it seems you can initiate the process of inline comment (highlighting, writing the comment in the right side) but when you actually try to publish the comment, it mentions no permissions to complete this operation.
