Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-471) LocalFileSystem.PERSISTENT "do not back up" file attribute iOS
Date Wed, 20 Jun 2012 18:24:43 GMT


christophe benoit commented on CB-471:

Though the name '' will be misleading as it won't actually be setting
this parameter (or people will wonder if 1.9.0 is not using this deprecated feature). There
also might be nuances between those two methods other than their primary goal (to say 'do
not backup'), so the old name ( will favour this misconception.

Don't you think the JS property name also should change to something more in the lines of
'NSURLIsExcludedFromBackupKey'? - there could also be a backward compability ''
property still kept by cordova API, but defined as deprecated in the documentation.

> According to the developer documentation on Apple's website:
> Starting in iOS 5.0.1 a new "do not back up" file attribute has been introduced allowing
developers to clearly specify which files should be backed up. (
> Persistance is easily achievable (LocalFileSystem.PERSISTENT) but there seems to be no
way of specifying if a saved file is not backed up to the iCloud or not.
> Apps may be rejected by Apple (depending on the data) if the "do not back up" file attribute
is not set.
