New privacy controls in macOS Catalina require users to allow or deny New notification center messages. For macOS Catalina computers, users might not see the first Automox notification sent even if Allow is selected.

If you use a Mobile Device Manager (MDM), you can push out a Notifications payload to force allow all Automox notifications. At this time, Apple allows only one Notifications payload per device, so you will need to include Automox notification settings in any existing Notifications payloads.

Example -  Automox Notifications MDM payload:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
    <key>PayloadContent</key>
    <array>
        <dict>
            <key>NotificationSettings</key>
            <array>
                <dict>
   <key>AlertType</key>
   <integer>1</integer>
   <key>BadgesEnabled</key>
   <true/>
   <key>BundleIdentifier</key>
   <string>com.automox.automox-notifier</string>
   <key>CriticalAlertEnabled</key>
   <false/>
   <key>GroupingType</key>
   <integer>0</integer>

   <key>SoundsEnabled</key>
   <true/>
                </dict>
            </array>
            <key>PayloadDescription</key>
   <string>Configures notifications settings for Automox</string>
            <key>PayloadDisplayName</key>
   <string>Configures notifications settings for Automox</string>
   <key>PayloadIdentifier</key>
   <string>com.apple.notificationsettings.AE35A3DC-56BC-48EB-8C4D-F4C5AE4D1C5C</string>
   <key>PayloadType</key>
   <string>com.apple.notificationsettings</string>
   <key>PayloadUUID</key>
   <string>AE35A3DC-56BC-48EB-8C4D-F4C5AE4D1C5C</string>
   <key>PayloadVersion</key>
   <integer>1</integer>
</dict>
    </array>
    <key>PayloadDisplayName</key>
    <string>Set Automox Notifications</string>
    <key>PayloadIdentifier</key>
    <string>com.automox.notifications</string>
    <key>PayloadRemovalDisallowed</key>
    <false/>
    <key>PayloadType</key>
    <string>Configuration</string>

    <key>PayloadVersion</key>
    <integer>1</integer>
</dict>
</plist>

If you need to add Automox to your existing notifications payload, add the following to your existing payload:

<dict>
    <key>AlertType</key>
    <integer>1</integer>
    <key>BadgesEnabled</key>
    <true/>
    <key>BundleIdentifier</key>
    <string>com.automox.automox-notifier</string>
    <key>CriticalAlertEnabled</key>
    <false/>
    <key>GroupingType</key>
    <integer>0</integer>
    <key>NotificationsEnabled</key>
    <true/>
    <key>ShowInLockScreen</key>
    <true/>
    <key>ShowInNotificationCenter</key>
    <true/>
    <key>SoundsEnabled</key>
    <true/>
</dict>

Example - allow notifications for Microsoft Office and Automox:
