Hi,

I use Alfresco 4.0.4 and 3.4.10.

Is it possible to block files of certain mime-types from being uploaded into Alfresco?
Ideally, it'll be very good if it can be easily set in repository properties, content model or something like these. But I don't know if this functionality exists.
As I also understood, this blocking cannot be done with help of content rules… Please correct me if I'm wrong.
And one more possible solution is to implement a custom AMP module which will prevent uploading unnecessary files. Right now I don't also know how to impement it because I don't see how implementing NodeServicePolicies.OnCreateNodePolicy can prevent node creation… Maybe there is another solution not connected with behaviour policies…

So, is there any appropriate solution for this problem?

Thanks in advance.
