Starting DEP Notify but getting the "downloaded from the internet" prompt

We want to kick off the DEP Notify from non-DEP machines. It works but when it first launches you get a prompt that the file was downloaded from the internet and if you want to trust it. Is there a way to suppress that?

The copy of DEPNotify you're deploying has the quarantine flag set.
Run

sudo xattr -r -d com.apple.quarantine /path/to/DEPNotify.app

and repackage it

I just tried and still the same issue. I'm running BigSur if that makes any difference.

So right now there's no DEPNotify pkg version for 1.1.6. But, sounds like this may work since I have to change those flags. But, how do you package the source code files in the PKG version to deploy?

@Chris Thanks. Your suggestion worked. Instead of repackaging what I did was run a script AFTER it's installed and before I kicked off the app. So works. Now just need to figure out how to upgrade to 1.1.6 without the pkg file.

There's a DEPNotify 1.1.6 package in the #depnotify MacAdmins Slack channel

@sdagley Thanks! I don't get on Slack often so I totally forgot to look there. The releases page for DEPNotify has only source code downloads, so someone really should work on getting the package posted. I have some M1 Macs on the way and I'm trying to get prepared.
