    Hi Christos Kalitsis,

    Thank you for reaching out to us on the Microsoft Q&A forum.

    To set up a Microsoft 365 Developer Program sandbox subscription kindly follow the steps below.

    Step 1 : Qualification Check

    Before requesting a developer subscription, ensure that you have joined the Microsoft 365 Developer Program directly or through Visual Studio Professional or Enterprise (if you’re a subscriber).

    If you qualify for a Microsoft 365 E5 subscription through the developer program, the subscription setup flow should start automatically after you join the program. However, if you choose not to set up your subscription right away, the option to do so will be available on your Microsoft 365 Developer Program dashboard.

    Step 2: Qualifying members can choose between two types of sandboxes:

    1.Instant Sandbox:

    This option provides a pre-provisioned environment with Microsoft Teams, SharePoint, Outlook, and Office. It includes licenses for 24 test users plus one admin, along with the latest Microsoft 365 apps for PC and Mac. You’ll also get pre-installed sample data to help you build solutions across the Microsoft 365 platform. Note that you cannot customize your domain name with this option.

    2.Configurable Sandbox:

    With this choice, you can customize your domain name. However, you’ll start with an empty sandbox that you must populate with sample data. The provisioning process for this sandbox may take up to two days.

    Subscription Details:

    The Microsoft 365 E5 developer sandbox subscription includes 25 user licenses and lasts for up to 90 days, depending on your activity.

    If you use your subscription for valid development activity, it will renew automatically.

    Please note that commercial transactions (such as purchasing paid services) are not currently supported within the developer sandbox subscription.

    Note: Your Microsoft 365 E5 developer subscription is strictly for development purposes only. Any use beyond development may result in revocation.
