The home interface


home allows access to non-hidden files in the user’s home ($HOME) directory.

Auto-Connect: yes on classic (traditional distributions), no otherwise
Transitional: yes

  • read (plug):
    optional, when set to ‘all’ allow reading non-hidden files in home directories of all users as traditional file permissions allow.
    When set to ‘all’ this plug becomes non-autoconnect.

Requires snapd version 2.33+.

Disabling autoconnections

It seems that setting the read attribute to all will make this interface non-autoconnect.
