libpipewire-module-portal - Man Page



The portal module performs access control management for clients started inside an XDG portal.

The module connects to the session DBus and subscribes to NameOwnerChanged signals for the org.freedesktop.portal.Desktop name. The PID of the DBus name owner is the portal.

A client connection from the portal PID to PipeWire gets assigned a pipewire.access of 'portal' and set to permissions ALL - it is the responsibility of the portal to limit the permissions before passing the connection on to the client. See Access Control for details on permissions.

Clients connecting from other PIDs are ignored by this module.
