    Hi Piyush,

    Are you referring to the top "Attachment" button or within an agreement where user inserts attachment via Contract Document?

    I'm also looking for a way to restrict access to the top attachment button. If you already have a solution, can you please provide your script so I could review and see if we could implement within our system.

    • I'm afraid that attachments is not a class included in IAPI, if it was you just need to create a script in event life cycle LOAD, and then put some logic to check if session user is not allowed and thrown an exception.

      To check that go, Setup > System Setup > Script Definition

      Create a new Script, choose Event Life Cycle choose LOAD, look for Attachments as a Class.
