I want all authors to be able to ingest, edit, update, publish etc., but we would only like admins to be able to create any new folders.  Is it possible to do that?

Thanks,

Jim P

Hi Jim,

You can try setting Acl permission deny with 

For Assets-

Touch UI-:

[0] /libs/dam/gui/content/assets/jcr:content/actions/secondary/create/items/createfolder

[1] /libs/dam/gui/content/assets/jcr:content/actions/selection/create/items/createfolder

Classic ui

[0] /libs/wcm/core/content/damadmin/actions/create/menu/createFolder

For Sites-:

Touch UI-

[0] /libs/wcm/core/content/sites/jcr:content/actions/selection/create/items/createfolder

[1] /libs/wcm/core/content/sites/jcr:content/actions/secondary/create/items/createfolder

Classic UI

[0] /libs/wcm/core/content/siteadmin/actions/create/menu/createFolder

I tried setting it for content-authors  group and it works for me

Thanks

Sarvesh

Hi,

from a UI perspective Sarvesh's comment is correct, as it will hide the respective items in the menu. But you can still create folderes directly in /content/dam using the standard HTTP interface.

That would work.  99% of the Authors would never look to any other method than a menu selection. We just don't want them creating hundreds of individual folders to suit their tastes. This will help much.  Thanks!
