Plugins that require capabilities not available on Production

I’ve come across this problem with a few plugins and haven’t come across a good solution. Many plugins check for capabilities like install_plugins to be visible at all.

Is there an easy way to override a plugins own settings without modifying the plugin?

It all depends on how the plugin is written.

You can also enable these capabilities changing to

define( 'DISALLOW_FILE_MODS', false );

inside config/environments/production.php
