Hi there,

Nic is correct. If the users have access to view the attachments on the page then they also have the permissions to download them.

I created a feature request for this some time ago that you're welcome to watch and vote:

Otherwise, it will require that you modify the code to disable the add-on, which you were trying to avoid.

Let us know if you have any questions.

Kind Regards,

Thanks Shannon 

but as per my  requirement i have to modify the code ..i checked you modify the code doc..

they have mentioned need to edit .vm file and update with below code 

$generalUtil.htmlEncode($generalUtil.shortenString($attachment.fileName, 35))

how can we restrict for specific page as per above code
please help me on this  


Hi,

You won't be able to restrict it; this is only to completely disable it.

To restrict it you only need to simply restrict who has permissions to access the page and its attachments. As long as someone has access to view the page and its attachments, they'll be able to download them.

shall i add some if condition to restrict specific page in .vm file ?

I'm not sure that's possible but you might be able to use a similar method as seen on Restricting users from the People Directory to specify a group that can have access.

Kind Regards,
Shannon

Thanks Shannon

i will implement and update to you the status


No worries,

To be clear, you won't be doing the exact same method as the above page but you can see how they restrict that specific function to a group. It may or may not work for your download button.

Kind Regards,
Shannon

Thanks for you help

i can able to restrict download option for specific page .
using adding conditions in .vm file 

Great that you were able to do so!

Do you mind sharing the exact settings you added and to which vm file? That way, if other users run into this, they can use your example.

It would even be helpful to share that on the feature request.

Kind Regards,
Shannon

sorry for the delay .

I have added condition like below in \ pages\includes\attachments-table.vm file 

 

<td class="filename-column">
#parse ("/pages/includes/attachment_icon.vm")
#if($generalUtil.htmlEncode("${req.contextPath}${attachment.downloadPathWithoutVersion}").contains("/download/attachments/3702788")) ->>3702788 is pageID
$generalUtil.htmlEncode($attachment.fileName)
#else
<a class="filename" href="$generalUtil.htmlEncode("${req.contextPath}${attachment.downloadPathWithoutVersion}")"
title="$generalUtil.htmlEncodeAndReplaceSpaces($attachment.fileName)">
$generalUtil.htmlEncode($attachment.fileName)
</a>
#end
</td>

Thanks,

Ramya

Ramya,

Thank you for letting us know! Users in the future will be able to see your response here and know how to avoid the download option.

Take care and kind regards,

Shannon

No.  If you don't want people downloading things, then don't put them on a page they can see.
