Test and production environment
Aiming to aid in the version migration with no major impact, there are two environment types: production and test. The production environment is é exclusively dedicated to the actual use of SoftExpert Suite by the organization, whereas the test environment allows testing the new functionalities or testing other configurations that were not used by the organization previously.
From version 2.0.14 onwards, the definition of the environment type (production or release/tests) must be performed through the Customer center, and it will be automatically applied to the system when activating the product. Also from this version onwards, test environments start to display an explicit message in the system header for all users to be aware of the fact that they are using a test environment.

If there are no changes left, a message will be displayed, informing that the production environment has already been changed 3 times in the current month.
5.After defining the new production environment, it will be necessary to access the "Configuration System (CM006)" menu, in SoftExpert Configuration, and execute the revalidation, for the system to redo the activation and apply the environment change:
