U4-7003 - Media Picker upload ignores media type restrictions

Created by Jan Bengtsson 21 Aug 2015, 13:47:33 Updated by Sebastiaan Janssen 14 Jun 2017, 09:42:30

Is duplicated by: U4-9167

An image that is uploaded via Media Picker is automatically assigned the media type "Image". So far so good. But what if the Media target folder does not allow the "Image" type? Well the image is given the "Image" type anyway, and is placed in the specified Media folder regardless this is prohibited! This means you cannot provide your editors with a readily accessible file upload (Media Picker) and at the same time have different custom fields and/or crop alternatives for the site images. A rather large obstacle in my opinion, at least for big sites with many and different types of images.

I confirm the issue also on v7.3.4 and 7.4.0 Is a big problem for us, we are still using U6 instead of U7 because of this.
