AppWrapper and Applescript Entitlements

@Sam_Rowlands - I’m updating an old (REAL.Studio era) tool that uses AppleScript. I can get it to build and it even passes Notarization and signing with the current AppWrapper.

What do I have to do to enable AppleSCript entitlements on the Capabilities page in AppWrapper? My main failing is a lack of understanding of the entry:

What is expected here?

You’re supposed to explain why you need this entitlement in that field. Something like “determines the currently playing song”

That seems counterintuitive compared to what Apple’s usually demanding of us :slight_smile:

I’ll give it a try.

And there it is - this time I was prompted to allow communication with the Music app and the project works!

As usual, clear as mud. :see_no_evil:
