Usually, when a trigger runs, we check what kind of a profile the user has, and if it's the kind where we don't want the triggers to run, then we exit the trigger before running any other code.
Problem: we have a SF package installed that we purchased from some other company, and all of its code is invisible to us, and is not editable. How can we stop some of those triggers from running other than manually disabling them through UI? I want to temporarily disable them while running a test class.
Was thinking about doing something like this, but got an error saying "DML not allowed on ApexTrigger."
ApexTrigger at = [select id from ApexTrigger where name='SomeTriggerName'];
at.status = 'Inactive';
