  • What is Sandbox?
    • It’s a test area, where we do our changes and validate, if it is as per the requirement
    • The content is not visible to other users, until it is published
  • How to Verify Whether a Page Can Be Extended Using Visual Builder Studio
    • If you see the Edit Pages in Visual Builder option in Settings and Actions menu of a page, that means you must use Visual Builder Studio to make changes to that page. If you don’t see the option, that means the page can’t be modified using Visual Builder Studio.
    • Here are a few things to know about using Visual Builder Studio:
    • If you need to make changes to the data model, you must first use other configuration tools, such as Application Composer, and then use Visual Builder Studio to make the changes in the UI.
    • You can make additional changes to the data model later using a sandbox and associate that sandbox with the workspace (your private work area) in Visual Builder Studio.
    • When you’re ready to merge your application extension changes with the mainline repository, you should publish the sandbox. Publishing the sandbox before merging your application extension changes can help avoid potential problems resulting from using two different data models. The application extension changes are then automatically deployed to a test environment.
