Environments

The Anypoint Platform allows you to create and manage separate environments for deploying, which are independent from each other.
Environments can either be of production or sandbox type. By default, when creating a new organization you get one production environment named Production.

Sandbox environments are helpfully restrictive environments for developers and testers, they facilitate safe testing of applications without the risk of affecting the production environment.

For example, you can create a sandbox environment for a QA team in which they can test new releases of applications before deploying in production. You can add users to a sandbox environment without permitting them to access the production environment, thereby securing production and eliminating the risk of a developer accidentally operating upon an application in production. After you are sure an application is safe to expose to users, you can easily promote the application from a sandbox environment to a production environment.

Managing Environments

Admin Only

To create or manage environments, access the corresponding menu by clicking the menu icon at the top right of the screen and clicking Environments:

environments-85dc3

To add an environment, click Add environment. Add a name, click Production or Sandbox, and click Create.

To rename or delete an environment, click its entry in the table.

In the Edit environment menu:

  • Update: Change the name and click Update

  • Delete: To delete an environment, click Delete.

You can’t grant users access to an environment directly, you must do it through the use of roles. To grant a role permissions to access your new environment, see Assigning Permissions to Roles.

Depending on the type of subscription you have on CloudHub, you may be restricted to creating a limited amount of each kind of environment.
