Each new App in Humanitec is created with a default Environment called Development. You can add as many other Environments to the App as you need. Note, that the default Environment cannot be deleted without deleting the entire App. This section explains how to create a new Environment based on an existing Environment.
New Environments can be created from the App Details Screen.
Click on the + next to your existing Environments.
Clone from - define which existing Environment you want to clone to create the new Environment. By default, Humanitec takes the last Deployment within the Environment you are cloning from to create your new Environment.
Environment type - allows you to select the Environment Type that should be used for the new Environment.
Environment name - specific the name for the new Environment following your internal standards.
Click on Create.
After hitting Create, your new Environment is created. Note, that Humanitec does not automatically trigger a Deployment to a newly created Environment. So make the changes you might want to make in your new Environment and then hit the Deploy to button to run your first Deployment in the new Environment.
Note, that in the Deployment history on the left-hand side you can see which Environment (and Deployment) your new Environment was cloned from.
