Logging into DEV and QUAL Environments

  • To log into a DEV environment, use your NetID and DEV Passphrase. 
  • To log into a QUAL environment, use your NetID and QUAL Passphrase.
    • NOTE: Just like your production NetID Passphrase, do not share your DEV or QUAL Passphrase with anyone.
    • NOTE: Your DEV and QUAL Passphrases should always be different from each other and your production NetID Passphrase.
      • Using the same passphrase for all environments is against information security best practices.

Data Samples in DEV and QUAL Environments

While much of the data in DEV and QUAL environments may seem identical to PROD, consider it a data sample. Data in DEV and QUAL are not likely to be 100% identical to the PROD  version.

DEV and QUAL data is refreshed throughout the year, and a new sample of PROD data is copied for development and testing. With that in mind, know that data samples may frequently change.

NOTE:  Data in DEV and QUAL environments must be treated as production data and, thus, protected under applicable confidential and sensitive information practices.
