Disabling Project File Uploads and Downloads

By default, all Cloudera Data Science Workbench users are allowed to upload and download files to/from a project. Version 1.5 introduces a new feature flag that allows site administrators to hide the UI features that let users upload and download project files.

This feature flag only removes the relevant features from the Cloudera Data Science Workbench UI. It does not disable the ability to upload and download files through the backend web API.
  1. Go to Admin > Security.
  2. Under the File Upload/Download section, disable the Allow file upload/download through UI checkbox.
