sql*plus on a mac --"cannot be opened because the developer cannot be verified."

Scott SwankFeb 24 2020 — edited Feb 24 2020

I installed the 19.3.0 instant client and sqlplus tools on my Mac.

$ which sqlplus

/Applications/oracle/product/instantclient_64/19.3.0/bin/sqlplus

When I try to run it I get a security error "sqlplus cannot be opened because the developer cannot be verified." This is common enough on Macs, and the solution is just to open it from the Finder (equivalent to Windows Explorer) and click a button to accept it. After that, however, I'm getting the same security restriction on a library:

“libclntsh.dylib.19.1” cannot be opened because the developer cannot be verified.

And since that cannot be directly opened, I'm unsure how to bypass the security warning. Has anyone gone through this and sorted out the details? I certainly don't see anything useful on the Oracle instant client web page.

Many thanks.
