If you want it to show for certain people you could add JavaScript into the custom html section in Confluence to conditionally set some CSS to hide the link to expand the file list. Granted that if someone wanted to go thorugh the page source they could still see it, but your average user wouldn't know how to do that. The CSS you would need is ...

.attachment-history {display: none;}

Here is some JS code that could do the trick.

	var user;

		case "DEV":
			user = "jdoe";
		case "HR":
			user = "jschmoe";
		case "DOC":
			user = "bgates";


function hideHistoryIfNot(user) {
	if(AJS.Meta.get("remote-user") !== user) {
		AJS.$(".attachment-history").css("display", "none");
