Can I test Copado in a sandbox?

Copado can run from a sandbox in the same way it runs in Production. Before using Copado in a sandbox (or any other developer, production or trial org), you need to contact our Sales to get all the features and licenses provisioned. This must be done even if you have refreshed the Sandbox from a Production org Where Copado is installed and fully provision.

Please note apart from testing purposes, we do not recommend to use Copado in a sandbox or any other org different than Production.

You can contact our Sales team at asking for the licenses that you need for testing and providing the organization Id where you want to use Copado. Of course the request will be evaluated by our team before provisioning the organization with the features and licenses requested.

The licenses and features works in the same way as in production except for the Installed Package Licenses. There are no installed package licenses in a sandbox. The Manage Licenses links under the install package section in the sandboxes don't exist. All the users have access to the package but, only the users with any of the Copado licenses (CCM, Enterprise, CAD, ...) will be able to perform actions with Copado.

When using a Sandbox refreshed from production, please make sure you do the setup from scratch in the sandbox rather than using the setup cloned from production since this may cause issues when working with Copado. We do recommend using a developer or partial sandbox without cloning the Copado setup records and then perform the setup in the Sandbox again.
