This topic explains the environments in Episerver Digital Experience Cloud Service, and their usage. The environments are used for publishing and testing of code, content and databases, to prepare for final deployment to a production site.
Depending on your DXC Service setup and products included, you will have two or more environments between which deployment is done. You can deploy to Integration, Preproduction, and Production yourself. See Deploying and DXC Service self-deployment guide.
The following scenarios are typical for the environments. The number of environments is based on the specific cloud package in your solution. See the Digital Experience Cloud Service Description for details.
Episerver Find is included in Episerver DXC Service. Each of the environments described above can be a multisite setup, and each of them will have their own Find index. In a multisite scenario, the sites share the same index, but each individual site has their own partition of the index, and a shared partition for shared content.
When you deploy to a production environment, ensure that the correct configurations are applied. See Environment configurations about how to set up environment-specific configurations.
Note: Make sure you never use credentials, tokens, or endpoints from a Preproduction environment in a Production environment.
