Codesigning Automator app
Hi. I have a useful simple automator app/droplet I've created and wish to distribute the app to my collegues.
They cannot open and run it, gatekeeper stops it, since it says its from a unidentified developer. Can I add this information to the app somehow?
I have a free developer account at apple and xcode installed but normally dont use it.
What can i do to add the developer info to the app?

Have a look at this:
Keep in mind that an app in OS X is just a bundle that contains executable code somewhere in it. So you can add a Info.plist file if the automater applications don't have them by default (although I imagine they probably do, since every bundle I've ever looked in, whether a plugin, app, or docset has had an Info.plist file in it.)
Don't tell me Macs don't last: 2007 iMac, 2007 Mac Mini, 2008 MacBook Air, all Vintage.

An Automator "application" is really just a self-running workflow that is actually run by the Automator Launcher, so I don't know how that would work. How are you distributing the workflow (zip, dmg, etc)?
MacBook Pro / OS X Mavericks (10.9.5) / Xcode 6.0.1 / RubyMotion FTW

See this article:
OS X: About Gatekeeper
There are two sections that may be relevant to you:
1. Get a Developer ID from Apple:
For apps that are downloaded from places other than the Mac App Store, developers can get a unique Developer ID from Apple and use it to digitally sign their apps. ...A paid membership can definitely get a signing key. I don't know if a non-paying membership can.
So sign up first for a non-paying Developer Program membership, then follow the instructions on how to get a code-signing key (google search terms: os x code signing). If you can obtain a code-signing key (or if you can't), then report back and tell us what you did and what actually happened.
2. See the subheading: "How to open an app from a unidentified developer and exempt it from Gatekeeper".
