Should be possible to create rule which blocks deleting of own comments

today users can as default delete comments - would like to be able to control  this pr. workspace ....by setting some rule rejecting this option

You can control today who can and can't delete comments using Permissions.
For each entity category that supports comments, yuu have Delete Comments by Author permission, which you can give or take away per role.

So if you want you can take away this permission from every one and give it only to workspace admins, or some other role in the organization that is allowed to delete comments.

thanks thats should be working fine....for isolated workspaces

We have so far around 50 workspaces under same shared space.....basically it means I need to create dedicated roles for this if some workspace want this.....

In rules I can add workspace exceptions.....cannot do this in permission...

I would like to better understand the problem.

Is the problem that most do want to be able to delete, and a few workspaces don't want to allow delete.

Or most work spaces do not want to delete, and a few do ?

@Jesper if you want to block delete in specific workspace, why can't use permissions to disable delete only in that workspace ?

Because roles are shared accross workspaces.

We mainly have one shared space with lots of shared workspaces below......so I would have to create dedicated roles for not being able to delete comments - sorry this doesn't make sense to me - we already have exceeded 30 different roles..

@Jesper alternative approach would be to add single role that gives permission to delete comments, and give that role to all users in all workspaces, except the one workspace where you want to prevent deletion.

This role needs to have only the delete comment permission, and you should take away this permission from all other roles.

So it's single role that need to be added, and not duplicate all roles in system.

WDYT ?
