Trash or Log for deleted Attachments like it exists for Pages

hi together,

we have the following situation: our confluence is not restricted so every user is able to do most things like creating pages/editing pages and delete pages. if a user deletes a page the space admin is able to restore it.

but right now we have a problem with the attachments. the attachments on a page are versioned. thats fine, but: if a user deletes an attachment, this is gone forever. there is no trash where a space admin is able to restore that attachment nore a log that tells me which user deleted this attachment.

my only idea would be: let only the space admins delete attachments. so if a user want to delete a attachment he has to request the space admin to delete this attachment.

does anyone knows another solution that is more user friendly but also lets an admin tell the CEO: hey that attachment was deleted by user xyz?

regards

Hi Dirk,

Actually it's not possible to move attachments to trash. We have a improvement for that already: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-6824 I suggest to vote and watch.

As for attachments permissions, you can set that in Confluence space permissions and state if a person or group can add or remove attachments for that space: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Assigning+Space+Permissions

Hope that helps! :)

Regards,

Rodrigo
