Prevent users from creating attachment if work item is in specific state


Ulrich Simon (131) | asked Dec 02 '21, 11:17 a.m.

I would like to prevent users from attaching a file to a work item when it is in a certain status.

There are rules in the settings that restrict this for specific roles, but not for individual work item statuses.
Is there any other way than to implement a server-side advisor?
Unfortunately, this option is not available in my constellation.

 For all I know, there is no other option than a custom server side advisor to have this behavior.

We found a workaround, which may help others: As the attachment information is stored additionally as a comment, I removed the permission to create a comment in the specific state. Then EWM/RTC blocks to create the attachment as well.
