You should always build and iterate on mission-critical apps in a separate testing or staging environment that operates separately from production. This approach allows you to fully test apps and safely release changes without any disruption to production apps.

Administrators of Retool organizations on Cloud or with an on-premise deployment of Retool Self-hosted v2.87+ can create any number of separate environments for anyone needing to build, run, and test apps.

On-premise deployments with certain requirements can also use multi-instance deployments to set up multiple environments.


Environments are only available on paid Retool plans.
