That sounds like a case of unsigned/unnotarised installer or plugin. When you download from the web many programs like Safari add a quarantine flag to the file and this causes the unsigned/unnotarised apps to not load on your MAC. If you use something like curl to download, then I think it will work(but try it on another MAC).

curl is a command line utility. The problem is not upload but download and all browsers will have the same effect. This is not something that is designed to work this way and browsers will add the quarantine flag to comply with the MAC security rules.

Unsigned and unnotorized are two different issues. For the first, you could use curl, but in my opinion, that's tricky...

 

If you scroll down this helpx page, there is a method for de-quarantining in Terminal that I usually use:

 

Workaround for old plug-ins not created for macOS 10.15

For older plug-ins that are not notarized, customers with Admin user privileges can remove the quarantine flag by using the following command if the plug-in is installed in the Photoshop application plug-ins folder:

 
sudo xattr -r -d com.apple.quarantine /Applications/Adobe\ Photoshop\ 2019/Plug-ins/<plug-in-name>
  

Or, use the following command if the plug-in is installed in the shared Creative Cloud plug-ins folder:

 
sudo xattr -r -d com.apple.quarantine /Library/Application\ Support/Adobe/Plug-Ins/CC/<plug-in-name>
 
If the problem is that the plugin is unsigned, you'll need to set the debug flag, also using Terminal. Please note that instead of CSXS.8 we're up to 11 now.. however, if it isn't a CEP "Plugin" this step isn't necessary.

@erinferinferinf I do know that unsigned and unnotarised are different things, the thing is that how this has been handled by Adobe is not clear to me at all. As per this article https://helpx.adobe.com/in/indesign/kb/indesign-plugin-notarization.html

Plugins do not need to be code signed, I quote from the article

"To align with Apple's notarization rules, InDesign 2020 has enabled hardened runtime entitlement that allows third-party plugins to load into InDesign without the need to code sign them"

So the only thing left remaining is making the Gatekeeper happy with an unnotarised installer and that can be done either via the command you gave or via something like curl. Having said this I have seen mixed results, so far I personally have not found any MAC that absolutely needed signed and notarised plugins(that could be partially due to those being developer machine or maybe less thorugh testing and limited set of machines) but on the client end I have has people who were stuck and some just chuged along fine.

Thanks, @Manan Joshi! This sounds even trickier than I expected... 😅

 

You're right, this is really unclear.

 

As an aside: I used to turn off "SIP" a few macOS's ago, but that's definitely not a solution for non-admins...

Knowledge base has a page on notarization. Did you follow that?
