Clone from Production to Non-Prod Environment
In the very near future we would like to do a cloning of our SAAS Production Environment down to our non-prod environments, to ensure that our production and test environments are in sync. We feel that the best way to accomplish this would be to wipe out everything in our non-prod environments, then package and migrate everything from Prod down. Is there anyone out there who has done this? Any advice? Some concerns/questions we had are:
- Can we wipe out everything in non-prod and then migrate down to do a full cloning?
- Is there an easy way to move data along with all applications, DDEs, Questionnaires, etc.?
- Is there a specific order in which we should migrate the applications?
- Is there any special considerations we should take when migrating DDEs?
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
Has anyone gotten around the issue of updating the LDAP groups when cloning to the lower environments? We haven't find any other way besides manually updating all the configurations that reference an LDAP group.
