Sandboxes: Cloning Generally Available and a New User Email Address
We’re improving application development with sandbox cloning. And, we're introducing a
new format for copied user email addresses in sandboxes.
Save Time by Cloning Sandboxes (Generally Available)
Sandbox cloning simplifies the management of multiple concurrent work streams in your application life cycle. Clone an existing sandbox for each type of work, such as development, testing, and staging. As you move from one development stage to the next, clone an existing sandbox rather than using your production org as the source. This pattern simplifies the customization of individual sandboxes. Your colleagues can easily clone individual sandboxes instead of sharing one sandbox to avoid stepping on each other’s toes.
Simpler Format for User Email Addresses in Sandboxes
When you create or refresh a sandbox, Salesforce appends .invalid to all user email addresses. This email invalidation ensures that production users aren't sent automatically generated messages from the sandbox.
