This is the new Xcode version (15.1)

Author: error when building the project

This issue is related to a sandbox violation occurring during the build process, specifically with the Alamofire framework. The error suggests that there is an issue with file-write permissions in the sandbox.

“User Script Sandboxing”

Solution: Disable User Script Sandboxing

To resolve this issue, you can update your Xcode project build option USER SCRIPT SANDBOXING to 'No'. Here's a step-by-step guide:

  1. Open your Xcode project.
  2. Navigate to your project settings by selecting your project in the Project Navigator.
  3. Select the target for which you are encountering the error (‘Test Project App’ in this case).
  4. Go to the ‘Build Settings’ tab.
  5. In the search bar, type USER SCRIPT.
  6. Set the value of USER SCRIPT SANDBOXING to 'No'.
  7. Rebuild your project.

By disabling user script sandboxing, you are allowing the build process to write files without encountering the sandbox violation. This should resolve the specific errors related to Alamofire and allow your project to build successfully.

After making these changes, try building your project again. If the issue persists or if you encounter any other errors, consider checking your Alamofire version and updating it if necessary. Additionally, ensure that your project’s dependencies are correctly configured.

Remember to re-enable sandboxing if it’s a security requirement for your project. Disabling sandboxing should be done with caution and in a controlled development environment.
