flatpak-document-export ā€” Export a file to a sandboxed application

Synopsis

flatpak document-export [OPTION...] FILE

Description

Creates a document id for a local file that can be exposed to sandboxed applications, allowing them access to files that they would not otherwise see. The exported files are exposed in a fuse filesystem at /run/user/$UID/doc/.

This command also lets you modify the per-application permissions of the documents, granting or revoking access to the file on a per-application basis.

Options

The following options are understood:

-h, --help

Show help options and exit.

-u, --unique

Don't reuse an existing document id for the file. This makes it safe to later remove the document when you're finished with it.

-t, --transient

The document will only exist for the length of the session. This is useful for temporary grants.

-n, --noexist

Don't require the file to exist already.

-a, --app=APPID

Grant read access to the specified application. The --allow and --forbid options can be used to grant or remove additional privileges. This option can be used multiple times.

-r, --allow-read

Grant read access to the applications specified with --app. This defaults to TRUE.

--forbid-read

Revoke read access for the applications specified with --app.

-w, --allow-write

Grant write access to the applications specified with --app.

--forbid-write

Revoke write access for the applications specified with --app.

-d, --allow-delete

Grant the ability to remove the document from the document portal to the applications specified with --app.

--forbid-delete

Revoke the ability to remove the document from the document portal from the applications specified with --app.

-g, --allow-grant-permission

Grant the ability to grant further permissions to the applications specified with --app.

--forbid-grant-permission

Revoke the ability to grant further permissions for the applications specified with --app.

-v, --verbose

Print debug information during command processing.

--version

Print version information and exit.
