I have been trying to access a file with my share extension, if the file is from photos app, I can access it, the path for the file is:

Code:
 file:///var/mobile/Media/PhotoData/OutgoingTemp/11485686-0D4A-4637-AA50-B14D83E18B01/RenderedPhoto/IMG_4807.JPG

but when I try to access a file on the "private" path, I cannot access it, like an MS word file:

Code:
 file:///private/var/mobile/Containers/Data/Application/196D7E75-87B6-4C69-B97A-74E58DF4AD65/tmp/ShareAttachments/%7BE73A233D-D10E-814D-AEB1-0C8C8AC9BFAA%7D/Document%20(7).docx

So my question is, how to access the file? apps like whats up or slack can have access to the file and attach it...

How to access this file? are they using "app groups"? how do they get the id for the app group? or how to access the file?

Hi, @scifan57 I'm trying to access an MS Word file, so I can upload to my server, apps like slack can do this, the file is in a /private location, but as mentioned slack and other apps can share it.

Thanks!
