Your Space is available in Development, Staging and Production environments.*
This article explains which environments are available, and how you can use them for your platform, product, or service.
Why have we introduced environments?
Our environments feature can be used to test and harden features before they appear on your audience’s screens. The ability to test in this way helps prevent publishing any incorrect content and detect any bugs that may have otherwise been passed onto your users.
Change the environment you’re in by using the environment switcher in the top bar of our interface. Continue reading to learn more about each environment.
Which environments are available?
All existing and new Spaces are available in three environments:
We created the development environment so that developers can test, create and iterate without causing any disruption to the live environment.
We created the staging environment so that features can be perfected, and de-bugged before they’re published.
The production environment is what your audience will see on your product, platform, or app. Anything published and served within this environment will be live for selected Tribes.
What’s shared across environments and what isn’t?
We’ve updated our interface to surface which environment you’re in and revised our page descriptions and UI messaging to communicate the impact of making a change for your other environments.
