Release Management

Prepare the Release Environments

  1. Develop and test: Each team member has their own Developer sandbox to create their assigned customization. Developer sandboxes contain no production data.
  2. Build release: Each team member migrates their customizations from their respective Developer sandboxes to a shared Developer Pro sandbox for integration. Developer Pro sandboxes don’t contain production data, but you can seed them with testing data.
  3. Test release: For user-acceptance testing, the team uses a partial sandbox to create a complete replica of production (without production data).
  4. Release: After the release is in production, the team can use the full sandbox to train users without the risk of altering production data. A full sandbox includes a copy of production data.
