Restrict Users from Selecting Files from Salesforce in Chatter feeds

Knowledge Article Number 000228370

To disable the permission in user profiles


1. Go to User Profiles in Setup.
2. Select the profile name.
3. In the "Administrative Permissions" section, disable Select Files from Salesforce.

2. Select a Permission Set or create a new one.
3. In the "System Permissions" section, click Edit.
4. Enable Select Files from Salesforce.
