There is a requirement for customers to be able to test on-prem systems, fixes rollouts and more against a non-production cloud.
During test upgrades of production systems, customers are unable to test cloud synch functionality, due to the risk of production data loss if they point their copied db at my.alfresco.com
Other, more general testing is also only possible if the customer connects to their production Cloud network.
The requirement is for a method whereby customers can safely point either
- test-copies of their production Alfresco On-Premise instance or
- Test/QA/Dev environments
to a test cloud,
