Production & Development Mode

LAST EDIT Jun 07 2021

Stream apps can be configured to be either in `development mode` or in `production mode`. You can select which mode your app should be in when you create it in the Stream dashboard, and you can easily switch between modes later on.

When your app is in production mode, certain destructive features in the dashboard are disabled. This prevents you from accidentally deleting user data or disabling mission-critical features.

To switch between modes, log in to the dashboard and find your app. In the `options` dropdown for that app, click the `Edit` button. This will open a modal window in which you can choose which mode your app should be in.
