I need to setup users who only access certain group folders in read-only mode. No problem with that.
However, I also need those users not to be able to create any file by upload or create any folder in their home folder. Is this possible? And if yes, how can I do that?
Those users only need the files app and the search apps.
Thanks for any pointer.
what about that idea:
create a user with 0 B of disk amount. Share your “read only”-Folder with this user.
Edit: With sharing i mean, sharing by entering the username in the share-column of the folder to read only. There you can untick the boxes to reshare, edit and upload data, so there is read-only.
In the files app I see “You don’t have permission to upload or create files here” for users with 0 B disk amount. So also this is working.
tested, works for me.
If you create users with the guest app, they don’t have home folders of their own, but can be shared with as read only.
Ah… “0 B” was the key.
I do not work with sharing, only group folders.
But your hint with the quota is the solution for me. Great!
Thanks a lot.
