Do not allow members to download a list on Sharepoint

Copper Contributor

Hello

I would like to change the permissions of the members from my Sharepoint so that they cannot download a specific Sharepoint list (only one list). Does anyone know how to do this?

Thank you in advance

Louis

@louisquinet What do you mean by "downloading a list" exactly?

Are you trying to prevent users from using "Export to excel" functionality in the lists?

 

If yes, you can do it using permissions like mentioned here: Remove Export from a SharePoint list 

 

or using JSON command bar formatting to hide the export button, check: Command bar customization syntax reference

Thank you very much for your answer. It works, but it applies this for every Sharepoint list, is there also a way to do this for one specific Sharepoint List?
When I go in list settings, I do not receive as many options as in the general options for the Sharepoint site.

Try this:

  1. Create a new custom permission level instead of customizing the SharePoint default permission level. Make copy of existing "Edit" permission and remove the unnecessary permissions as mentioned in the link I provided in above reply. Check: How to create a custom permission level in SharePoint 
  2. Break permissions inheritance at list level and grant permissions to members group using new permission level. Check: Customize permissions for a SharePoint list or library
