Prod vs dev configuration

It appears the prod vs dev system variable is not available on the free tier.

Is there any other way to configure settings for “dev” (preview) and “prod” the built app? Or maybe a workaround besides manually changing the configuration before builds. I think the only thing that really matters to me is the ability to switch the url for the api I’m integrated with.

Yes the system variable is an enterprise feature, but you can, of course, do something similar manually by using e.g. an app variable that you configure from global canvas and use in your URLs etc. So you’re on the right tracks with that!

My preference is to have on login choose whether or not I want to login to dev or prod and hide this selection before I build (defaulting to prod). This enables testing both dev and prod environments before building.
