Hi all,

voting in on this topic, I believe it should be possible to restrict deletion/removal of attached files.

Use case: we have a DocType which has an external reference. This is added, then the DocType saved and submitted. After this, the external reference needs to be there (for later reference). If, then only a System Manager should be able to remove the file.

Actual behavior (Frappe Framework: v9.2.20 (master)): any user can open the submitted DocType record and remove the file. The field will still contain the original reference name, but the file is no longer there.

Should I open a ticket on GitHub?

Thanks @kolate_sambhaji, this workaround worked (in combination with Build.json and custom CSS - #2 by revant_one ) No files can be deleted. Still I guess a full solution should be the aim.


@lasalesi We can add this in System Settings.
You can send pull request for this.

Sometimes we print a invoice and attach a listing of billed hours.
For that case we can not allow any user to delete that attachment.

The workaround with display: none is a very bad one. Any plans on adding a feature to prevent deleting attachments?

We can either hide it using

But it’s not feasible to add for all documents and also addition will also be removed :neutral_face:
Suggesting restriction deletion of file instead :sweat_smile:
