Setting up SoftPro Test Environment

Post by enendza » Mon Sep 28, 2020 7:29 am

Morning -

I would like to update our SoftPro test environment to be more an exact copy of the production environment but just copying the DB is a big task (over 550 GIG of data).

So, is there a way to set up a NEW database for our test environment that mirrors production WITHOUT all of the order data? I need it to mirror production as business has set up a lot of custom tasks / rules that get executed on order events and if I don't have these then dev isn't a valid test environment.

Any feedback or advice is appreciated

The SoftPro Custom department has a tool that can be used to create a new Select database where only part of the orders are written to it. Usually one would select a trust account or profile and its orders would be copied to the new database. There is a charge for this service.

Contact Elliott Potts (Elliott.Potts at for more information. We have done this same process for other companies so they could create test/dev environments.
