Request for classic confinement for Pydio Cells-Sync


About us: We are the developers of Pydio, an open source EFSS (Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing) solution that can be deployed On-Premise or in a Hybrid / Cloud environment. Pydio is available either through a Community distribution that is free forever or an Enterprise which provides all the features, support and compliance to secure file sharing.
Home page:

We would like to request Classic confinement for desktop sync client of Pydio (cells-sync)
The application needs wide access (read/write) to the host filesystem for synchronization with Pydio server. The path selected by user are variable from media mount, mount to home directory or even /opt, /var … in the system to sync.

We are at your disposal for any technical detail.

Kind regards,

The requirements are understood. This use case is similar to sftp. That said, I’ll ask the same question here as over there: does your application require executing files? Does it run as root?


No, the required permission is read/write on data (usually user’s data) and it doesn’t run as root.

Kind regards,


@advocacy - can you perform the vetting?

The requirement for arbitrary file access is well understood and we’ve validated that @c12simple is a member of the upstream GitHub organisation.

Granting use of classic. This is now live.
