Adding an additional environment to a Cloud project
Adding or Removing Environments
Important:Before adding an environment, you should consider if you have any changes locally that are not on Live yet. If you do, you should make sure to push it as adding another environment will also push it into the deployment chain.
Important:After adding a Development environment, you need to do a fresh clone of the site. The local version you have will be set up to push directly to Live, a fresh clone will push to Development.
You can find the interface for adding or removing environments from your project page here:
Adding and environments
On the Manage Environments page, you can add or remove an environment. If you wish to remove an environment, you will be prompted to type in the environment alias.
There is a specific order that the environments are being added. You will need to have a Development environment before you can have a Staging environment.
If you have both a Development and a Staging environment and need to remove the Development environment, then you will first need to remove the Staging environment before you can remove the Development environment.
Once you have added or removed an environment, it will take a couple of minutes for Cloud to set it all up, and then you will be ready to use it.
