I have code-signing Build step scripts which code-sign my .debug app and my non-debug app.
Under 10.14.5, when the code-signed debug app runs, it does not behave like the signed and fully built app.
Specifically, both my app and debug app are signed with the following entitlements:
<key>com.apple.security.assets.pictures.read-write</key> <true/> <key>com.apple.security.personal-information.photos-library</key> <true/>
And yet I consistently see that the debug app will fail to load photos, while the non-debug app works.
Looking inside System Preference / Security & Privacy / Photos, under “Allow the apps below to access your photos” I see only the non-debug app. The debug app never shows up.
- there is just something about running the debug app which doesn’t work
- the debug app and the non-debug app share the same bundleID, and this is confusing the OS
