It is really time consuming that any member of my team and I constantly have to re-enter the keys on all our computers for local development and on every dev, stage and prod environment after every single sync of the database.
This topic was started in 2014 and I’ve been following it since at least 2016. Every few years there’s been some noise indicating this was being worked on, but here we are in nearly 2020 and it’s still not resolved.
Like many other developers I regularly deploy updates to development, staging and production environments for numerous sites with ACF Pro installed. Each time I run a database migration (via WP Migrate DB Pro) I have to manually reactivate ACF Pro. I have yet to encounter another premium plugin that behaves similarly.
@elliot, I love ACF and owe you a huge debt of gratitude for the time and effort you’ve saved me over the years! That said, this has been a pain point for a long time. Is there any possibility of this making it onto the roadmap for 2020?
+1 (again). @elliot, we chatted a few years ago, and you were interested in doing this and possibly spoke with others (Delicious Brains, Gravity maybe?) in how they do things. Can you at least give us an update whether this is going to happen?
We all love ACF Pro. We just lose countless hours due to this issue that we don’t have with any other pro plugin.
