Restrict file access to Open only in fileVista?
Idea shared by LCN - March 29, 2015 at 10:53 PM
Completed
Can anyone please help me how can I restrict file access to Open only in fileVista? I dont want to allow users to download the files. I want to allow them for Open and Print only.
I have tried different file Permissions. "Traverse" doesn't allow to open and "Read Only" allows to download. I want to permit users for Open and Print only but not download.
 
Any help will be appreciated.

Opening files actually mean downloading the file (in the background from the browser's perspective). However we are planning to add built-in viewers for most file types so that we can separate Open and Download actions. For instance, we recently added Media Player which can open video and audio files directly and not via browser. In the next version, we plan to add viewers for common document formats like Word, Excel ,PDF etc. So it will be possible to allow users to Open and Print only when required. We will also have 2 separate permissions like "Preview" and "Download".
