How to check if you are working in edit mode and in run mode in Canvas app?

I intend to do is not save the "login" to a canvas app when in edit mode, the only feasible way I gave is to ignore the admin role of my users table (SQL Server) as only that role can edit the canvas app, but I would also like to register that login by the admin user when they are working in run mode; so I would like to know if there is any way to verify if the canvas app is working in editing mode or in execution mode since this would avoid generating the login record when the canvas app is being edited. I hope there is some way to do it.

Hi @MasterRA , 


Do you want to get whether the current app is in edit mode or Run mode?


If so, I'm afraid it is not available for now. But you can create a new idea through the below URL, then ask  your colleagues to raise up the votes.

Best Regards, 


What a pity that there is no current way to know if it is in execution mode or edition mode; although I don't think it will create an idea since it will surely not have as much support to be considered for implementation.
