Different colors Service Studio by environment

Service Studio
On our radar
Hi,
My idea is to change the service studio color depending on the environment that we are connected. This is to avoid publications in quality environment. Example: dev (green), quality (yellow) and prod (red).

Should you not be restricted by lifetime to publish in quality environments?

I like the idea.
I'm a developer but also admin for the other environments so sometimes (usually Monday morning) I sometimes develop in the wrong environment.
I want it to put severe WARNINGS and require confirmation when publishing to non-DEV. Not just a mere color change.

J - What happens is that you connect to QA or PROD to do a hotfix/patch or just to inspect code... then accidentally publish what should be DEV code to QA or PROD the next day when Studio connects you to QA or PROD by default. It's happened to me a few times now.

The different colors could also apply to Service Center.

I agree this is a good idea.

Justin's comment about the warnings (perhaps a confirmation dialog) will also definitely help.

I have disabled Service Studio automatically connecting to the last used environment, as this has caused some issues. Perhaps a dialog message informing you that you are not connected to a development environment will also be helpful.

It would be nice that Service Studio could identify a login in a Production Environment and change it's color / add an Production icon warning.

For now I agree :D


It would be totally awesome if this colorizing also includes the "recent list"

Too often i kinda forget to look at the environment behind the modules

I really miss it. It's a great idea and easy to implement, no impact anywhere.

I think it would be usefull to change Service Studio Theme (colour, appearance) so we could set different colours for instance for different environments (Dev, Staging, QA...).

March 2016?! In my opinion this is one important thing to develop. :)

Hi community,


Like other software, where it is possible to define the color for each environment (ex: red for production, yellow for quality, etc), it would be very useful if service studio had the same behavior.


Sometimes, and i'm not the only one, I'm working on the wrong environment and i don’t realize it, until later :(


Thank you.

Would be great, for service center we use the Google extension Tampermonkey to give the headers of each environment different colours. Works like a charm.

Good idea. Always happen to me as well (wrong environment).

Changed the category to Service Studio

Why would a color be an advantage over the already noticeable "environment name" in the 2nd tab?

and when in production-mode you will get a dialog to confirm if you are sure?
