  • Preview
    • The preview environment is also known as development, test, or staging to other customers, the purpose of this environment is to allow human testers to exercise new and changed code via either automated checks or non-automated techniques. After the developer accepts the new code and configurations through unit testing in the development environment, the items are moved to one or more test environments. Preview environment also mirror the actual production environment as closely as possible and may have the same user information or database via an instance refresh.
