The snap-refresh-control interface

The snap-refresh-control interface allows extended control, via snapctl, of refreshes targeting the snap.

This interface and the full set of features it requires to function are currently under development.

Interface documentation:
See Interface management and Supported interfaces for further details on how interfaces are used.


Developer details

Auto-connect: no

snap-refresh-control is a marker interface (with no associated AppArmor or Seccomp rules).

Currently it allows connected snaps to execute snapctl refresh --proceed to unblock pending refreshes outside of the context of the gate-auto-refresh hook. This interface should be used with caution.
