What is a Sandbox?

A Salesforce sandbox is a replica of your Production org. Sandboxes are separate from your Production Org and are used to configure, develop, customize, and test your client’s requirements. Below, we learn about the different types of Salesforce sandboxes.

Sandbox Types

There are 4 types of Sandboxes:

  1. Full Sandbox:
    • It is an exact copy of Production, meaning it will always have a copy of data and metadata similar to Production.
    • Its refresh time is every 29 days (approximately once a month).
    • Capacity is going to be the same as Production. (For example: if Production Org Storage Limit is 256GB, it will also be 256GB for a Full Sandbox).
  2. Partial Sandbox:
    • It is a copy of Production and will have the same metadata as Production.
    • For data, some sample records will be allowed.
    • Its refresh time is every 5 days, (approximately once a week).
    • Capacity is 5 GB.
  3. Developer Pro Sandbox:
    • It will have only the same metadata as Production.
    • Its refresh time is every day.
    • Capacity is 1 GB.
  4. Developer Sandbox:
    • It will have only the same metadata as Production.
    • Its refresh time is every day.
    • Capacity is 200 MB.

 

Once you have created and tested your client’s requirements in a Salesforce sandbox, you can deploy it to the Production org using Change Sets.
