How to restrict users to access the files directly from /irj/go/km/docs/doc

Dear Experts,

I have made a folder in KM where I have saved some files, and also I have made a application from where user can access those files.

But the users are able to access the files by directly typing the path of the file in internet explorer, I have to restrict it that the user should not be able to access the files directly.

Please give your helpful suggestions.

Warm Regards

Hello Upendra,

I suppose users are accessing the files directly using /irj/go/km/docs/<path_to_document> URL.

This will call a KM Document iView from the Standard User Role

(pcd:portal_content/every_user/general/eu_role). If you wish to stop users from accessing documents like that, remove the KM Document iView from it or change its Authentication Scheme.

However be aware that this could bring bigger problems, since it's like a default/general point

of access to documents, removing or restricting this access may prevent users from seeing

every image you got into your portal for example.

Also, it's possible to display different documents based on user id, you could create

these pdf files into /userhome

then create a KM Document iView linking to
