Environments

Note

Azure Active Directory is now Microsoft Entra ID. Learn more

Environments are the instances of the application that have been set up for the tenant. An instance can be of either a production type or a sandbox type. The environment APIs can be used to:

  • Get information about the environments currently set up for the tenant
  • Get information about the used storage and allowed quotas
  • Create a new environment using sample data or as a sandbox copy of the production environment
  • Delete an environment.

Note

Special care should be taken when deleting a production environment as the data will not be recoverable

Get environments and Get environments by application family

Returns a list of all the environments for the tenant.

GET /admin/v2.19/applications/environments

Returns a list of the environments for the specified application family.

GET /admin/v2.19/applications/{applicationFamily}/environments

Route Parameters

applicationFamily - Family of the environment's application as is. (for example, "BusinessCentral)

Response

Returns a wrapped array of environments.

Create new environment

Creates a new environment with sample data.

Content-Type: application/json
PUT /admin/v2.19/applications/{applicationFamily}/environments/{environmentName}

Route Parameters

applicationFamily - Family to create the new environment within (for example, "BusinessCentral")

environmentName - The name of the new environment. See the section below about valid environment names to see what values are allowed.

Note

The Create, Copy, and Delete operations are asynchronous.

With API v2.8 and earlier, the response objects are returned before the underlying operation has completed. The final results of the operation are reflected in the status field of the environment that the operations affect. In practice this means that polling of the Get Environmentsendpoints must be done to determine if the given operation was successful.

With API v2.9 and later, consumers should rely on the status field of the corresponding EnvironmentOperation response to monitor the status of the underlying operation. So, to get the updated status of the operation, consumers should poll the Get environment operations for all environments endpoint rather than Get Environments and inspect the status of the relevant operation.

Body

{
  "environmentType": string, // The type of environment to create (enum | "Production", "Sandbox")
  "countryCode": string, // The country to create the environment within 
  ("ringName": string), // Optional - The logical ring group to create the environment within. Currently only Sandbox type environments may be created in a 'Preview' ring. If not provided then the production ring will be used.
  ("applicationVersion": Version), // Optional - The version of the application the environment should be created on. If not provided then the latest available version will be used.
}

Note

The values for the countryCode, ringName, and applicationVersion properties should be derived from the API endpoints described in the Available Applications section below.

Delete environment

Deletes the specified environment. This operation soft deletes the environment, which means it's retained for fourteen days during which time it can be recovered. For more information, about environment deletion and recovery, go to Delete and recover environments. If the specified environment has the status Creating Failed or Removing Failed, the environment won't be retained and will be permanently deleted immediately (hard delete).

DELETE /admin/v2.19/applications/{applicationFamily}/environments/{environmentName}

Route Parameters

applicationFamily - Family of the environment's application. (for example "BusinessCentral")

The final results of the operation are reflected in the status field of the environment that the operations affect. In practice this means that polling of the Get Environmentsendpoints must be done to determine if the given operation was successful.

With API v2.9 and later, consumers should rely on the status field of the corresponding EnvironmentOperation response to monitor the status of the underlying operation.
