Environments are one of the core elements in an Internal Developer Platform. Internal Developer Platforms allow developers to create new Environments and change (development) Environments on their own without support from the DevOps team.
However, the DevOps team is in full control over the Environments Types available to the developers as well as the infrastructure connected to each of these Environments Types. All of this can be controlled using the Role-Based Access Control available in Humanitec.
Make sure to check out the How-to Guide for Developers to understand how developers can use Environments in their daily working routines.
