Modify Security and Accessibility permissions

Is there a way to modify security and accessibility permissions that were introduced into Mojave 10.14? 

I have created a managed installation for a remote support application, and I can deploy it successfully to the end-users (devices), however I need to be able to modify Screen Recording permission and Accessibility. 

Is there a way that I can modify this setting utilizing KACE?

How do I enable Accessibility permissions on my Mac?

But you can check and verify if the permissions are properly set.

  • Click the Apple symbol in your OS X menu bar and open System Preferences. 
  • Choose Security & Privacy. 
  • From the Security & Privacy panel open the Privacy tab and select Accessibility. 
  • Look at the list labelled "Allow the apps below to control your computer" and see if RescueTime is both listed and checked. If it is present and checked, no further action is needed. 
  • if RescueTime is on the list and not checked, click the lock at the bottom of the modal window to make changes. 
  • Once you click the lock you'll be prompted to enter your computer user name password. You can then check the box next to the RescueTime icon. Make sure to click the lock again to commit the changes you made. 
  • If RescueTime is not present on the list click the lock so you can make changes. You'll be prompted to enter your password. Click the + sign and find RescueTime in your Applications folder. Once you double-click the application will automatically be added to the "Allow the apps below to control your computer" list. Make sure to check the box next to it before clicking the lock again. 

Once the Accessibility permissions are enabled, you should be able to log website details. 

  • That is a way to perform the configuration manually, but I have 500 computers that need this performed, and my end-users do not have administrative access over these settings.
