I am exposing an Mac OSX application by adding its bundle identifier and urlscheme in com.apple.launchservices.secure.plist.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
Until I restart the machine I don't see the url scheme in lsregister - dump output
/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Versions/A/Support/lsregister -dump | grep myurl
canonical id: com.test.myurl (0x80000008)
URL scheme: myurl
all roles: com.test.myurl (0x80000008)
Even immediately after deleting these entries from the plist is also not reflecting in lsregister , I need to restart.
I tried Kill, seed of lsregister but no luck. How to update this entries in lsregister without a restart
You have to use launchctl to tell launchd to re-read the launch services plist.
