During staging, you test the functionality you created in the development phase. This staging environment simulates a production environment.
Consider setting up a common development environment for the development phase and the staging phase. You might move iteratively between these two phases, developing and then testing what you created.
As part of the staging phase, verify that delegated administration and visitor entitlement roles that you set up are working. You can also review personalization logic (see the) and content management (see the ) in this phase.
When you move to a production environment in the production phase, your users and groups from the staging phase are not automatically moved there.
