How do I log into the developer edition?

Can anyone advise how I can login to the developer edition?
I can login to my production and sandboxes but not the developer

A "developer edition" is totally seperate to your production/sandbox editions.. which are connected.

When you sign up for a developer edition (at https://developer.salesforce.com/signup) you set a new username (which must take the form of an e-mail address, but doesn't actually have to be an e-mail address.. sound familiar?)... and when you do this you do actually provide your e-mail address too.

This will get you an e-mail to login to your new Developer Edition using a link, and you can then set a password etc. and you are away, working in a new, clean - UNCONNECTED - developer edition.

The e-mail looks like this, so search your inbox for "Developer Edition Login" to find your welcome e-mail.

There is no default "automated" way to migrate work from DEs to Sandboxes etc. they are totally stand alone (2 licence) orgs, with their own logins.

Additional answering to say: When you are logging into a Developer edition it is at:


because they are a "live" version of salesforce, so not test.salesforce.com - which you use for sandboxes (it won't work from the wrong login screen)
