SharePoint online dev and testing environment.


  • HI,

    We are planning to use SharePoint Online for developing SharePoint Portals not apps. We have O365 E3 subscription. So we got One root site and few predefined site collections. I want to know how can i implement dev and testing environments in O365.

  • You can, the general approach is to purchase additional tenants for Dev and Test, or to use trial tenants.

  • You can't easily.

    You can try saving the site as a template but it isn't a high fidelity copy and may not work in your destination tenant due to version changes.

    A more robust approach, and the only one that really scales at the moment given the limited tools that we have, is to make the process you use to build the sites re-usable. In that way you don't try to move the site, instead you ensure that you're able to build another exactly like it.
