Fusion Sandbox

Hope you are aware what is Sandbox, if not dont worry, here is the brief description about it.

What is Sandbox in oracle fusion?

Sandbox is one of the handy tool or featured delivered by oracle, which helps to manage any customization easily. You can think of it as creating your own copy of fusion instance and doing changes/customization on the copied instance rather than on live instance directly. Using sandbox you can test the customization without affecting anybody else on the instance. When you are satisfied with the customization you can also release the sandbox to user for testing and their confirmation. Client can see the changes by accessing your sandbox. When they are happy with the changes you can publish the sandbox to running instance and changes will be applicable to all. If you do not like the sandbox you can simply delete it or leave it die.

We also have some interview question of Sandbox?

Question : What is the reason you are not able to delete a Sandbox?

Answer : Is it possible that sandbox that is being deleted is still active. An active sandbox cannot be delete. First we need to come out of sandbox and then using manage sandbox we can delete the same.

Question : What role is required to create/access Sandbox?

Answer : Application Implementation Admin Role is required to create Sandbox.  The following duty roles can also be granted to functional user.

1.Application Sandbox Publish Duty – Allows access to the MDS Sandbox publication action.

2.Applications Sandbox Metadata Import Duty – Allows access to importing of sandbox metadata.

Question : What is the Maximum number of Sandboxes i can create?

Answer : There is no limit on the number of sandbox you can create. However, it is the best practice to delete the sandbox if its no longer required to avoid any confusion and possible mistakes of publishing wrong sandbox.

Question : Is it possible to reuse published sandbox?

Answer : As on today its not possible to reuse the published sandbox but you can check the oracle note 2167900.1 for any recent change.

Question : Can Application Users Receive a Notification when a Sandbox is Published?

Answer : Unfortunately, at this moment the functionality you are asking about is not supported.
So there is no automatic notification or even the possibility to create a notification when a sandbox gets published, regardless of the modifications/customization in the sandbox. Check oracle note 2167900.1
