The issue you are facing:

I would like to set up file access control.
The goal is that only members of a “restricted” group can upload xml and txt files. Other file types are not allowed.

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N): Y

Steps to replicate it:

  1. Install the App "Files access control

  2. Fill out

  3. Configured like this I can upload everything except xml files.

  4. If I now change “matches” to “does not match” only the upload of xml files should work according to my understanding. But then I can’t upload anything at all.

What is perhaps also important: The files are uploaded via WebDav.
