An environment is the primary subdivision of an organization.
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.
Environments contain the core resources on which all identity services are built. Environments encompass:
- Branding and images
- Password policies
- Risk policies
You can find the following details for your environment in:
- Organization name
- The name of the organization.
- The name of the environment.
- The description of the environment.
- The environment license details.
- Environment ID
- The environment ID.
- Organization ID
- The environment organization ID.
- The type of environment (sandbox or production).
- The geographical region for the environment.
- The date and time the environment was created.
- Console Login URL
- URL to sign on to the admin console for this environment.
- Self-Service URL
- URL for end users to access the self-service portal.
- Application Portal URL
- URL for end users to access their application portal.
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.
