Customize Package Designer Window

We have had some issues where some developers with access to the Package Designer have clicked the "Files Statically" option in the package designer and accidentally included files and overwritten them in a different environment.

As expected that has caused many issues and in some cases downtime in higher environments. We are using Sitecore 8.2 + Unicorn. I was wondering if there is a recommended way to remove/disable the "Files Statically" option from the designer. Thanks!

  • Yes this is possible, adjust the read right for Core db item:
    /sitecore/content/Applications/Tools/Installer/Designer/Ribbon/Package/Add/Add files manual

    But it seems to me more that this went wrong once and now something has been learned. and that you can improve testing better than that crazy custom configuration in Sitecore.
