Instance Method

stopAccessingSecurityScopedResource()

In an app that adopts App Sandbox, revokes access to the resource pointed to by a security-scoped URL.

Declaration

func stopAccessingSecurityScopedResource()

Discussion

When you no longer need access to a file or directory pointed to by a security-scoped URL, such as one returned by resolving a security-scoped bookmark, call this method (or its Core Foundation equivalent, the CFURLStopAccessingSecurityScopedResource(_:) function) on the URL to relinquish access. When you call this method, you immediately lose access to the resource in question.

If you call this method on a URL whose referenced resource you do not have access to, nothing happens.
