NAME

flatpak-document-export - 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.
