I need to restrict particular file type while uploading into document. Is there any possible way to restrict? I know there is no OOTB feature. Guide me if there any ways ? Also send me the sample code.



We can use code to create an ItemAdding event receiver to restrict specific file types when upload to the library.

Reference: Restrict File Types in SharePoint Document Library Upload using Event Receiver

  • You can create a workflow that start automatically when an item is created. and use "delete List Item" action when the file type is equal to relevant type. reference:blog.sisq.info/en/2013/03/… – Hellofiona_MSFT Feb 20 '19 at 8:06
