We would like to use Privileges app to elevate MacOS standard users’ access (to admin) just for 5 minutes (App homepage added at the end). The way the app has been designed from its developers works in a different way. You can click it from the OSX doc and that would enable indefinite admin access for the user, until the icon is clicked again. You can also right click it from the doc and select “Toggle privileges”, and that would give just a temp admin access, which is what we want (Note the number “5” in the second screenshot below, which means “5 minutes”).
So ideally we would like to remove the indefinite access and make the app working just as from the “Toggle” option. In this case the user would only be able to get admin access for 5 minutes, at the end of whom the access would be converted back automatically to standard user.
We also need this new coded Privileges app to be pushed from our MDM, which is SOTI MobiControl.
