flatpak-document-export - Export a file to a sandboxed application
flatpak document-export [OPTION...] FILE
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.
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. --ostree-verbose Print OSTree debug information during command processing.
