Each organization should contain at least one environment. Large global enterprises can have several environments, which can be based on region or on enterprise operations, such as staging or production.

Environments contain populations, which provide the structure to manage groups of similar users within the environment. In PingOne Risk, the Environment tab is used to manage users within the Administrators environment.

Environments contain the core resources on which all identity services are built. Environments encompass:
  • Populations
  • Users
  • Applications
  • Activities
  • Branding and images
  • Password policies
  • Risk Policies

Environment types

When you create an environment, you can select sandbox or production. Sandbox environments are intended for configuration and testing before deployment. Production environments are intended for live configurations that are deployed for real-world use.

  • You can't delete a production environment unless you first demote it to sandbox.
  • If you have a trial license, you can't create production environments or promote sandbox environments to production.
