I want to disable the funcion of attachment download, and i find the method in document:http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Disabling+Attachment+Downloads, but it tell me: These customisations will disable attachment downloads for all users, including administrators.
This is not good, i hope the uploader of this document and admin can download it but others can't, so how can I get it?
Pls help me, thanks very much!
Hey Jerry, I believe you could add this to the actual customization
s it would allow you to filter by group that the user that is currently viewing the page belongs to.
#set ($groups = $userAccessor.getGroupNames($action.remoteUser))
And then you can use the $groups to check what groups specifically this user is, with :
This will check if the user belongs to the confluence-administrators group, and then allow the user to download it.
Overall would be something like this:
#set ($groups = $userAccessor.getGroupNames($action.remoteUser)) #if ($groups.contains("confluence-administrators")) Show Attachments #else Custom Message #end
Hope this helps! Cheers
I've tried to find another workaround for it and found this improvement: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-19182
Unfortunately it was closed as won't fix because we don't have an estimated time to implement that feature.
As the only workaround I can see, is to disable the downloads for all users and if you need to grab the file, then you can go through the attachments folder in Confluence home directory and grab the file manually there. To find the file, you'll need to go through some folders. This can be explained by this documentation: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Hierarchical+File+System+Attachment+Storage
I hope this helps or at least mitigates the issue.
