Question about Configuration-only sandbox and Developer Sandbox difference

Can someone please clarify this ? Thanks

 

Does the following line  'but exclude all your organization’s standard and custom object records, documents, and attachments.' means in Developer Sandbox it is included. ?

 

Configuration-only sandbox

Configuration-only sandboxes copy all your production organization’s reports, dashboards, price books, products, apps, and customizations, but exclude all your organization’s standard and custom object records, documents, and attachments.

 

Developer sandbox

Developer sandboxes are special configuration-only sandboxes intended for coding and testing by a single developer. They provide an environment in which changes under active development can be isolated until they are ready to be shared. Just like configuration-only sandboxes, developer sandboxes copy all application and configuration information to the sandbox.

Thanks Rahul_sg for confirming this.

 

One more question since I find the documentation a bit confusing -

 

Developer Sandbox

Developer sandboxes are special configuration-only sandboxes intended for coding and testing by a single developer. Multiple users can log into a single developer sandbox, but their primary purpose is to provide an environment in which changes under active development can be isolated until they’re ready to be shared.

 

 

From a coder's perspective, what scenario would drive a decision to  use Developer Sandbox Vs Developer Pro Sandbox.

 

Thanks a lot.

Hi,

 

The idea behind having a Developer Sandbox is to give developer an environment, where he can do development/enhancement/fixes and can do unit testing isolated from a complete environment. With Winter'14 release, the maximum size of a developer sandbox can be 200MB. This will give enough user to setup the developer environment and populate master tables, like Product2, Territory etc, so that a developer can do complete unit testing. Once, developer is done with coding and satisfied with unit testing, he can move code to some developer-pro environment, where group of users, potentially Business Analyst/QA/Stakeholder can do testing before full sandbox and then production deployment.

 

Hope it will answer your question.

 

Happy to help you!
