You can configure who can create documents at the document class level. By default every member of the Contributors role can create new documents in the library. However you can define a specific list of document creators in the document class’ security settings (1). At the bottom of the page go to the “Document creation” panel (2) and click on the “Change…” button (3). It will open a list box with the following options (4):
- “Only users and groups listed below”: if you select this option, only the users and groups listed in the “Document creation” panel will be able to create documents of this class. Note that you can only add users and groups who are members of the contributors role.
- “Document can be created by all library contributors”: if you select this option (which is the default one), all library contributors will be allowed to create documents of this class.
