Notion install

Anyone deployed Notion app successfully?

I'm trying to place the app in self service so a non-admin user can install since it requires moving the app to the users application folder.

After running from a few test machines the app installs successfully from self service but fails to open saying its not installed properly.

So far i've built the installer from composer by DMG and PKG and made sure root and wheel are selected.

@dmahase Looks like the user has to have a non-standard level of access to the app (for non-admin users).
Try this in the files/processes > run command section of the Notion install policy:

chmod -R 775 /Applications/Notion.app

@dmahase You can use install-update-app-in-dmg to do this. With the install-update-app-in-dmg.sh script as a payload in a Jamf Pro policy, you can set the following parameters to install or update the app if already installed:
- Parameter 4: curl -A "Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X)" https://www.notion.so/desktop/mac/download -s -L -I -o /dev/null -w '%{url_effective}'
- Parameter 5: Notion.app
- Parameter 6: CFBundleShortVersionString
- Parameter 7: true

What is the policy output?

Are you setting Different permissions on the Applications folder?

I'd suggest this as an alternative payload for the run command section

chown -R :staff /Applications/Notion.app && chmod -R 775 /Applications/Notion.app

@ryan.ball Just came to say thanks so much for posting this! It was a great help after tearing my hair out trying to create a pkg for Notion yesterday
