FLATPAK DOCUMENT-EX(1)   flatpak document-export  FLATPAK DOCUMENT-EX(1)

NAME         top

       flatpak-document-export - Export a file to a sandboxed
       application

SYNOPSIS         top

       flatpak document-export [OPTION...] FILE

DESCRIPTION         top

       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         top

       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.
