Typical role function - how to limit file sending?

This is to limit users from sending large files, to save bandwidth, or even to disallow users to send files if you set it to 1KB.Because users can be assigned to a role that suits them, users can be assigned as different authorities, such as some users can send large files, while other people cannot.

  1. set send file size limit
    Security management --> Roles --> New Role (for example: Role1-file in this case)
    OUM-server
    OUM-server
  2. Permissions --> Find the option File size limit for sending
    You can enter a number (for example: 5 in this case) as the maximum limit.
    If the size is set to 1KB, that is to say the file can hardly be sent.

  3. Check if the user is within the list
    If you want Sara to belong to role1 (limit the size of file sent in this case), make sure she is selected. Now she is only allowed to send a file no larger than 5MB.
