Hi @Pankaj Jain ,


Could you check if you have permission to attach the attachment in the space permission? 

To check the space permission browse to the respective space -> Space settings -> Permissions nad check if you have the attachment permission either as a group or individual error.

Make sure that you are the admin to the space to browse the space settings.



Hi @Pankaj Jain

As you can see in below screenshot, there is an Attachment Permission settings. If the user or the group to which user belongs doesn't have this permission, they won't be able to add/ insert any attachment to the page. 

As @Sravya Chintalapudi (Appfire) highlighted, you can check this out under Space Permissions Tab & possibly checking under user management tab for the permission which user have.
