Details

I'm running macOS Sierra version 10.12.3, and I haven't been able to figure out how to run a try build.

https://it.uoregon.edu/fix-security-settings doesn't work anymore, because the "Anywhere" option is gone.

https://support.apple.com/kb/PH25088 doesn't work for me either.

I'm able to run nightly builds. I just can't seem to run try builds.

Please point me in the right direction.
I believe this is a SecAssessment issue, where there's no longer a UI to call spctl.

I think you can open a Terminal and, within it, run:

sudo spctl --master-disable

to get the behavior back from El Capitan's option.

When I'm done testing, should I run something like:
sudo spctl --master-enable

to reset to the regular protection?

Yes, exactly.

There's also some finer-grained controls in there to permit special paths to be OK, but using the "big switch" seems easier to me.
Thanks! Worked like a charm!
