Catalina: Instruments with Full Disk Access


I am trying to use Instruments on my laptop, but it seems that after updating to Catalina, it cannot access my Documents folder:


I have given access to the application, Full Disk Access, but it does not work (I even shut down the laptop and restarted it, and also checked for errors with Disk Utility).


Am I missing something?

In Xcode you may start using Instruments with Xcode -> Services -> Toggle Instruments Recording.

This will trigger a chain of settings events inside OSX. The result can be verified by looking to File and Folders in Privacy tab (Xcode will be added also there).
