Use the provided widgets / API to make your non-production environments (e.g. Dev, QA...) look or behave differently from production.
Small proof-of-concept on how to tap into the platform's data model to get the running mode and server name.

On small software factories, sometimes the same team has access to both production and non-production environments. On this scenario, you'll want to make sure nobody clicks that critical-erase-stuff-without-undo button in production by mistake (thinking it was QA).
With this, you can make your non-production environment look different (let's say, by adding a big top banner saying (Testing Environment), or behave differently (for example, disabling / enabling certain features depending if you're in a production server or not).

[How to use]

Add the provided web blocks (EnvironmentSticker_Circle or EnvironmentSticker_Name) to your layout screens. They'll be shown in non-prod servers, but hidden in production.

Or, just reference these public actions and build your own logic / UI changes around them:
  • Environment_DevelopmentMode (boolean - true for non-prod, false for production environments).
  • Environment_Name (text - returns the configured environment name).
[Note] This component's behavior is based on Service Center's configuration: Administration > Environment Configuration:
  • Running Mode
  • Environment Name
