        I have a Mac application (codesigned but not distributed through the Mac AppStore, so not sandboxed) that has screenshare capabilities.  Since Catalina (Mojave?) this requires the user to open System Preferences > Security > Privacy and enable screen sharing, and separately to enable accessibility (to allow remote users mouse/keyboard control).

         

        The question: is there a more seamless way to get these permissions?  Can I add them to my entitlements.plist (used by codesign)?  This isn't working, probably because they are private apple entitlements?

         

        The current situation is that our customers may or may not see a pop-up directing them to sys prefs, and if they do they don't understand what to do.  So we're getting a lot of support tickets.
