Clone a Sandbox/Utility Server

The Frame Platform supports the ability for administrators to clone Sandbox and Utility Server images across accounts. This enables administrators to replicate a single Sandbox or Utility Server to multiple accounts. Only Organizational or Customer Admins can initiate a clone.

Initiate a Clone

The Sandbox/Utility server cloning operation will remove and replace the Sandbox/Utility server in one account with a Sandbox from a different account.

Note

You must initiate the Sandbox/Utility Server cloning operation in the account you wish to copy the image from.

Follow the steps listed below to clone an image from one Sandbox to another.

  1. Navigate to the Dashboard of the account you would like to clone the Sandbox from.

  2. From the “Systems” page in your Dashboard, navigate to the Sandbox tab on this page or the “Utility Servers” tab if you wish to clone a Utility Server image. Click on the ellipses next to the desired system and select “Clone to another account.”
