Discussion

An app that adopts the FileProvider framework can see when and with which other apps the user accesses managed files. Before providing this kind of information to a file provider, the system prompts the user to grant access. Add the NSFileProviderPresenceUsageDescription key to your file provider app’s Information Property List file to provide a string for the prompt that explains why your app needs this information.

After the user chooses whether to grant access, the system remembers the user’s choice. To reset permissions, use the tccutil command line utility with your app’s bundle ID:

$ tccutil reset FileProviderPresence <bundleID>
