Workflow fail with "developer cannot be verified" errors in Catalina

Recommended Posts

There are many Alfred workflow that I use regularly that are failing for me after upgrading to Catalina. They fail with the message "developer cannot be verified . . .". See this thread, for example:

 

I fixed that one by recompiling myself, on my machine from the GitHub source. For me, this verifies that this is a Catalina permissions issue of some type.  

 

Is there any way of fixing these errors without manually rebuilding these workflows on my own machine? I have verified that Alfred 4 is enabled for Automation (lots of apps, including terminal), accessibility and full disk access.

This apparently works, but it's a right PITA.

 

I don't believe there's anything Alfred can do about it, nor any changing of Alfred's permissions that can help.

 

Catalina simply does not want to run executable binaries that aren't signed with an Apple Developer ID, and makes it very difficult to do so. The problem is entirely of Apple's making, and they're the only ones who can fix it.
