Snap download question

I have a private snap. In a terminal window I ran

$ snap login

I was able to login successfully and I am able to install the snap using:

$ snap install privateSnap

However, I cannot download the private snap

$ snap download privateSnap

Returns an error

$ snap download publicSnap

Works perfectly fine.

Is it possible to download a private snap?


Confirmed, this is not possible.

I just checked with a snap that is published privately. I can snap login, snap info and snap install, but not snap download.

I suspect this is simply because snap download doesn’t authenticate against the API, but just tries to get the snap anonymously assuming it’s public.

Hi How can get access and download the private snap without giving the snap credentials
