Restricting Readers.


I have a list of members on confluence that have only read access rights. I have noticed that these readers also have the ability to attach documents.

Can you restrict the ability to attach documents to confluence users with read access? Thanks.

See the Confluence Documentation here for more info on Assigning Space Permissions:

Hope this helps!
