Re: Delimit access to attached files to task

Hi.
Attachments don't have an own security model, so if a user has access to the parent entity (task, request etc.) he will have access to attached documents too. Read access lets him download/open them, write access lets him modify/delete them.

Sascha,thanks.
I have next question: why all users what have pm license and view end edit projects (edit not all projects) access grant can delete any docs attached to project. But this user not a manager on this project? This is bug or design?
Thanks in advice!!!!!!

Re: Delimit access to attached files to task

Hi.
As far as I know the access to attachments of the project itself is determined be the access configuration to the project details request type. If the user is able to edit the request, he also will be able to edit/delete references to the project. If the user maybe is stakeholder only, he does not necessarily have access to the project detials and references tabs at all.
