    Understanding Sandboxes

    A sandbox is a work area within a bank that contains capacity (virtual machine units), as well as the users assigned to that sandbox. Each sandbox contains one or more libraries, which is where you store and access topology file sets.

    A sandbox is also a collection of users who work together on a topology. A single user can be part of any number of sandboxes in any number of banks and can have different privileges in each sandbox. Multiple topologies can be started by the same user in different sandboxes provided the user has the proper permissions. The only restrictions are that a user can join only one topology at a time and only one topology can be active at a time in a sandbox. As a user, your bank administrator creates a sandbox, and then gives you permissions for using the sandbox. You can be assigned library management permissions, reservation management permissions, and topology management permissions. To learn more about permissions, go to Understanding Permissions.

    Note: Only bank administrators can create, update, or delete sandboxes. You cannot make a reservation in any sandbox in a bank where the end date or time of the reservation goes past the expiration date of the bank.

    As a user, you can view your sandboxes by going to Administration > View Banks/Sandboxes/Libraries in the navigation tree. If you want to learn more about Sandboxes, see Viewing Sandbox Information.
