Managing environments

The environment is an entity that determines the scope within which records with regulated data are stored on the InCountry platform. You can also think about an environment as a bucket that stores sensitive data. Data records stored within a specific environment (so-called, bucket) are separated from records stored in other environments. The environment allows you to get access to your data stores on the InCountry platform.

To view the available environments, on the menu, select Environments. The Environments page opens, as follows:

Environments

On the Environments page, you can view the list of available environments. For each environment, the following information is available:

AttributeDescription
LabelName of the environment that exists for your organization.
TypeType of the environment.
ClientsNumber of clients within the environment.
IntegrationsNumber of integrations within the environment.

Within each environment, you can have multiple clients and integrations that you can use for storing regulated data on the InCountry Platform.

You can manage environments, as follows:

  1. create new environments

  2. edit the existing environments

  3. delete the no longer needed environments
