I'm working on a tricky User plugin that needs to do certain things only if being called from a 3rd party component. I could check the option in the url, but I need to consider that the user may be added by way of a 3rd party using MVC and and the model directly, not necessarily with a link FOR that 3rd party component.
Is there a way to determine this?
Update: Ancient problem, but was still haunting me, so if of any interest to anyone, I created a Logging class that can track where updates of this nature are done, and save the data and parameters involved for later review. Its freely available at JSE Github.
