I have the requirement to allow users to view the content of a document library, including browsing through folders, but not actually open the individual files.
There doesn't appear to be a permission to restrict users from opening files, but still display the item.
Naturally it is an option to create a view that doesn't have the 'open link' in it, but that doesn't stop users from manually constructing the URL. Also there are other options in the context menu that I want to be available for the individual documents.
I realise that a similar question has been asked before.
