Production vs Test Environments

UGS Secure Sites exist in two types of environments:

Production: live and intended for active use,

Test:  intended for ongoing development and in-house testing prior to going live.

Unless you are participating in testing requested by the WebDev team, make sure that you are in the Production Environment. If you are having trouble with a website, particularly if it doesn’t look the way you think it should or the data looks wrong, please confirm that you are not in a Test environment before contacting the WebDev team.

Do not distribute, post, or link to Test sites. These are intended only for specific internal use. Sending students or faculty to Test sites can result in errors, confusion, and loss of data.
