My question is regarding switching 2 environments. When we were deploying Forest for the first time we deployed our staging env which Forest recognizes as our production. We later on deployed our production env which is recognized as an intermediary environment. We now want to switch these 2 without losing all our layout changes. I wanted to ask if switching these 2 variables is enough and if it will preserve the respective layouts.
Thank you in advance!
Thanks for your message.
It’s a bit tricky to correct the situation here, as the 1st environment you created (named today
Staging) will stay the reference environment anyway.
We intend to make this process much simpler in the future.
But for now, you need to:
- Rename your
Production environment to
Staging 2, and your
Staging environment to
Production (on the project settings of the Forest Admin interface)
- Switch the Admin backend URL between the 2 environments (on the project settings of the Forest Admin interface)
- Switch the environment secrets (on your admin backends)
Staging 2 to
And everything should end as you wish.
Let me know!
It worked perfectly, thank you so much!
Hi, so my understanding is that even though the name has switched “Staging” will still be the default
