MacOS PPPC controls require three approvals per favourite on 10.15 Catalina

Joe Selway


Hi all,

We are currently testing with the Citrix Workspace TP 19.10.0 and the current macOS 10.15 Catalina Beta and macOS 10.14.6 Mojave.

For any favorites that are added to the Mac app, an application stub (e.g. ~/Library/Applications/Microsoft Word.app) is created.

Due to PPPC controls on macOS, whenever these stubs are launch, the user is prompted up to 3 times to allow the stub apps to control Citrix Workspace/Viewer and vice versa.

As Apple's controls only provide for whitelisting specific combinations, of which we would potentially have 129*3=387 entries, which is not practical.


Is this a known issue with a recommended workaround?

Also, is it possible to disable the .app stub creation behaviour for favorites? Non-favorite Apps launched from the app list do not have this problem.
