Attachment categories

An attachment category controls the security of attachments in your application. It restricts user operations on an attachment, based on privileges, when conditions, or attachment types.

Access control

Attachment categories apply to different attachment types in your application. You can configure an attachment category to restrict the following user operations for a specific attachment type:

  • Adding a new attachment

  • Editing an existing attachment

  • Viewing an attachment

  • Deleting an attachment

  • Deleting an attachment that was created by the user

You can further refine restrictions by using privileges, when conditions, and required work groups. Updates to an attachment category take effect immediately and are applied to all unresolved work in your application.
