Using Sandboxes

Sandboxes are logical partitions which can be used to organize or categorize different apps. You can move apps between sandboxes. You can also create, list, update, or delete sandboxes.

  1. On the Apps page, the current sandbox is shown in the upper left corner. The apps shown on this page will be filtered according to the current sandbox.

  2. Click the caret control to open the list of all sandboxes:

  3. Click a sandbox to show only the apps in that sandbox on the Apps page. You can also click All My Apps to show every app in all sandboxes.

  4. Click +New sandbox to create a sandbox. You will be prompted for a Sandbox Name, and an optional Display name and Description.

    Sandbox names must start with a letter or underscore and can include letters, digits, periods, underscores, and dashes. The display name can be used to create a label with any special characters, which will be used in the UI. For example, your app could be named My_Sandbox_Name, with a display name of My Sandbox Name.

    Click Create to create the sandbox.

  5. Click the shortcut menu () to view details about the current sandbox:

  6. Click Edit in the app details to change the display name, name, and description of the current sandbox:

    Note: The default sandbox My Default Sandbox cannot be edited or deleted.

  7. To delete a sandbox, hover over its name in the sandbox list, and a trash can icon will appear. This can only be done when there are no apps in the sandbox.

  8. You can move apps from one sandbox to another using Move to a different sandbox in the app shortcut menu to the right of the app on the Apps page, or on the App Details page.

    After an application is moved to a different sandbox, the app will restart. The application endpoint does not change. The number of instances remain unchanged.
