There are three types of Adobe Launch environment by default, which are Production, Development, and Stagging. New properties are created with three environments: one Development, one Staging, and one Production. This is enough to run the publishing workflow. If desired, you may add additional Development environments. You can create multiple Development environments, only Production and Stagging can create one
Development——Team members can use development environments to develop and test libraries, or sets of changes, created in Launch. Each environment has its own embed code, which can be deployed on any development sites. A company can have unlimited development environments.
Staging——The staging environment is an optional environment where a team member with approval rights can test and approve a library before it is published. The staging environment embed code should be deployed on the official testing site. A company can only have one staging environment.
Production——The production environment is for the live, customer-facing site. The production environment has an embed code which should be deployed on the production site. A company can only have one production environment.
