Staging and Production Environments

Last updated 2 months ago

Chatlayer provides two environments, staging and production, to support working in parallel on a new version of your chatbot without interfering your production version which is talking to your real users. You have access to both environments.

  • Staging

  • Production

  • We recommend to not change data and configuration (flows, NLP, settings) directly in your production environment

Once your bot is ready and has been tested in the staging environment, it's time to publish your bot to the production environment. At the moment you need to Get in contact with the Support team or your project manager for each migration. In one of the future release this process will be automated and you will not need to login in two applications anymore for building new flows or analysing your production version.

If you have a bot that you want to run on Facebook Messenger, we advise to set-up a separate staging Facebook page and app for your staging version of the bot.

Each day your production user messages are added in the staging environment so that you can train your NLP models every day based on actual user data.
