Is it possible to deactivate CDN for DEV and QA as caching slows down development drastically?

Hi @mikeg.

How are you accessing Dev and QA?

 

Do you have dedicated website environments where the Tealium Environment is set in the page source?

 

Or are you using a Tool, such as the Tealium Web Companion, to substitute the environment?

Hi Mark,

 

we are using the Web Companion to switch environments.

 

Best regards

Hi @mikeg

In that case, if you are happy to use Chrome, you can use one of our custom tools to switch environment rather than the Web Companion, and this will solve your issue.  It is called the Environment Switcher.

 

Here's a page describing custom tools.  I know it is entitled how to build them, but actually it mostly deals with how to install them.

The code you need to install to get access to the custom tool is below.

Thanks, seems this is way better than switching environments with web companion which caused utag.js to be loaded twice from different locations.
