Hello All.
How can I use setfacl to set a permission for my group, That group members can read and create file but can't delete?

Cheers.

You don't, because the question itself makes no sense.

If a user can WRITE to the directory, that means they can MODIFY what's there...including DELETE files. You can easily do read-only, but if you want what you're after, you need to use selinux for it. Since you asked about selinux TWO YEARS AGO:

...you should already be familiar with it.

Actually, If you remove write from the directory, you will not be able to create or delete files in the directory, but you will be able to modify. Fyi,.
