Test environment for pilot web applications

Updated in 2021.2

If you want to leverage the pilot upgrade, install the latest Alloy Navigator Express web applications (the Web App, Self Service Portal, and the API module) on a separate computer dedicated to testing (or on a virtual machine), different from the production server hosting your existing Alloy Navigator Express web applications. For example, on the test computer or virtual machine where your pilot Automation Server resides.

This will allow you to test the latest web applications with your pilot database, while still using your existing system in production.

When moving Alloy Navigator Express 2022 to production, you will upgrade web applications on the production web server, and then configure the latest web applications to use the existing URLs that your users currently access, which will seamlessly replace your existing web apps with the latest version.
