On one of my Magento 2 websites I noticed while in Production mode, the Developer tab is still showing in Stores > Settings -> Configuration > Advanced.

The store seems to be running fine but something has to be wrong as it's not hiding the developer tab.

Has anyone come across this before?


Yes the developer configuration section can still be visible in production mode if the static materialized view files listed below are not cleaned up.

  • pub\static

  • var\view_preprocessed

also clear the cache.

For code investigation , debug these files


Magento\Developer\Model\Config\Backend\WorkflowType - afterSave()

  • Thanks for your suggestion. The materialised view files are being cleared completely and the Developer section still appears unfortunately. – Paul Donnelly Apr 16 at 9:37
