What’s New?

CAPPS Financials: Sandbox Maintenance — 8/26 - 8/27

The CAPPS Financials Sandbox (FINSBX1) environment will be refreshed from the User Acceptance Test environment from 5 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 26 until noon on Saturday, Aug. 27.

The refresh will support the CAPPS Financials go-live at 11 new agencies on Sept. 1, 2016. This will enable agencies to compare their recent deployment testing results to what they are seeing in Production. This will also give the agencies the ability to further test issues that come up in Production and validate if the issue(s) existed during original deployment testing.

The following environment will be unavailable: FINSBX1 – CAPPS Financials User Acceptance Testing. The Production environments will remain available during this time.
