Is there any way I can disable access to download assets for some users. I still want them to be able to view the asset but they will not be able to download it.
I did a run through the internet and found something like this https://kbdeveloper.qoppa.com/?p=3608 which says
There are some catch here. Assume you are displaying a PDF to the user . Now if he opens the PDF (as you want them to still see the doc) , if they do a save of that PDF from the browser, they will still be able to save it to local right ?
May be not in a straight forward way ...
Yes, that does makes sense. So essentially this wouldn't be possible, right?
Only way i can see is to write a custom servlet that controls asset download.
Are they authenticated users ?
