Prevent upload of attachments via drag&drop during viewing

Deleted user Jun 26, 2018



as described in the title, is there an option to disable the Upload?

One of my users accidentally uploaded an unrelated file because he dragged it over his screen and released it on the confluence page.

He did not realize it until another colleague asked him, what that is.


This could be a security risk, if he uploads a confidential file to a public page.


Kind regards

Hi @[deleted],

Pls try searching for the keyword in the system plug-in and deactivate it

Confluence Drag and Drop Plugin


Deleted user Jun 27, 2018

Hi @Ollie Guan_携程,

but that would disable the whole functionality wouldn't it?


I just want to deactivate it during viewing, it should still be possible in Edit Mode.

Hi @[deleted],

you can disable "Drag and Drop Actions" only


Deleted user Jun 27, 2018

Hi @Ollie Guan_携程,

awesome that worked.

I disabled

View Content Client



I want also to disable Drag and drop only in view mode. But it seems that disable "View Content Client" does not work on my place. I can still add a file to any page.  Disable "Drag and Drop Actions" or the whole plugin is not really an option for me, because  we need Drag and Drop features in edit mode.

Has anyone a idea why  disable "View Content Client" doesn't work?
