It is possible to enforce different permissions for selected groups of users. Useful for scenarios like
- Increase the upload limits for Confluence admins to handle exception scenarios
- Only the media team users can upload large videos
- Restrict maximum size of images (png/jpg/gif) to 100kb, but allow PDF files to be up to 10mb
- Customers can only upload images whereas staff can upload pdf and office documents as well
