Announcing Environments: Safely Test Your Notifications Before Going Live

Courtney Chuang

January 27, 2021

Today, we’re excited to announce the release of Environments in Courier. You can now create, preview, and troubleshoot your notifications in a test environment before going live.

With support for two environments – Test and Production – you no longer have to worry about accidentally sending a notification to your users before you’re ready. Having an isolated test environment means you can safely debug your notifications, invite your team to make changes, and ensure your notifications work exactly as you intend before shipping to production.

Let’s take a look at what’s possible with Environments in Courier. 

Map your development environments to your workflow in Courier

Both your test and production environments have two API keys: Draft and Published. Across the four API keys, you can easily and seamlessly map your development environments to your workflow in Courier. For example, you might use the Published key in the Test environment for testing and the Draft key in the Production environment for staging.

Easily copy templates and assets between environments

We designed Environments to make it simple and fast to migrate your notification templates and their associated assets – Brands, categories, and more – between test and production. Once you’re happy with your test notification, you can copy it to your production environment in just a few clicks.

Support test and production API keys for your integrations

By default, all of your integrations work in both the test and production environments. But, if you’d prefer an extra layer of security, you can add a test API key for your integration that will only send notifications from Courier’s test environment.
