The home interface

home allows access to non-hidden files owned by the user 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’, also allows reading non-hidden files in the home directories of all users as traditional file permissions allow.
    When set to ‘all’ this plug becomes non-autoconnect.

Requires snapd version 2.33+.
