Unable to code sign my MacOS Xamarin.Forms application

I'm using MacOS Catalina with VS 4 Mac v8.8.2.41 Community and app signing never enables, even though I've provisioned my Mac Book Pro.
I'm creating a Xamarin.Forms app, if that make any difference.

Here is what the Mac Signing screen looks like. I'm fairly sure I've provisioned my Mac correctly, but any tips and suggestions welcome.
I just want to sign the app to run on someone else's Mac, without having to go through the right click shenanigans.

Edit: Do I need to create a valid Distribution category?

    Please close this issue, I have found the that I need to create ALL the certificates, before those options were enabled. I'd forgotten how laborious provisioning is on Apple devices:)
