    Is it possible to have Media permissions as Umbraco has in Content ?

    Hi all,

    I'd like to strict my users to skeleton structure in the Media section so that they can only add and delete new folders. The base structure needs to be undeleteable for some users.

    Is it possible (if not with the UI then with the API) ?

    Hi wilenx,

    Yes it´s possible to have permissions in the media library as Umbraco has it in the Content. 

    There is a package named Media protect, with this you should be able to set permissions media files such as pictures pdf´s and so on.

    Could that be a solution to you?

    And there is the link to the projects homepage:

    I hope this could be a good solution to you.

    Hi Dennis! Thanks for replying my post.

    I've checked the Media Protect package, and though it seems nice, it was intended only for members. I need an Umbraco user protection; prevent my editor users to delete skeleton media folders.

    I can't seem to find anything like this. If this is the case, I will have to create one for myself which I don't know how much time it would consume.

    Hi wilenx,

    Probably waaaaay to lat ethis but i have come just come across this reading about something else.

    I have done a similar feature to what you require(d) using the events system - and basically using the id's of the folders to cancel the delet in the beforedelete event:
