Not requesting Automation access to System Events.app

Recommended Posts

Alfred isn't requesting automation access to System Events.app on one of my Macs, so actions like Lock don't work.

 

Alfred version: 3.7.1 [946]

macOS version: 10.14.2

 

I've tried stuff from the Lock Doesn't Work thread, but there's no "Request macOS Permissions" option in the bowler menu.

Note that in System Preferences, Alfred has iTunes automation access, but not System Events automation access:

Any thoughts? Is there something I can do to trigger Alfred to ask for automation privileges again?

@roguelazer Welcome to the forum :) You'll need to grant Alfred Accessibility for the Lock command, so go to Security & Privacy > Privacy > Accessibility and ensure that Alfred's present and checked.

 

Let me know how you get on!

 

Cheers,
Vero
