Ability to disable import of documents into a database

Just as it is currently possible to disable export of view data in database properties, it would be very good if you can also disable users' ability to import.
Today, users can point out a local file via import that generates junk in the database. An inventive user can also circumvent the developer's rules and generate documents via import that get unexpected effects by importing a file with "right" content.

    Unlikely to implement this idea. Please continue to vote for this idea if you think it should be done.

    Understand, you'd like to make sure that all your data is consistent and users can not mess up your application by creating documents with malformed content.

    Agreed.  Checkbox on Database Beanie tab properties "Deny Import"  if checked, greys out the File -> Import option on the Notes / ICAA client.

    I have less concern about people exporting data than importing unrelated records into a shared application that then need to be removed.

    Unfortunately, it is possible. The user is authorized to create documents in the database, but not "Replicate or copy documents".
    Although the user is "Editor" and able to create documents in the database, I do not want the user to be able to generate other documents than the application offers the possibility of in its interface.

    It shouldn't be possible if the ACL is set up correctly and "Replicate or copy documents" option isn't selected for the users
