Creating and managing environments

An Acquia Journey environment is a place in which to store connections for a project. Each project can have several environments. The environment typically reflects the stage of deployment (such as development, UAT, staging, and production), but you can call an environment anything you want. Environments can only be created by users with administrator privileges for the project.
