Banner Environments Explanation
PROD (production) is the live Banner environment that should be used for all official (non-test) proceses and data access.
TEST, also called “pre-production,” is used by approved employees to test new versions of Banner software, new functionality, and data changes. Not everyone with access to Banner Admin PROD has access to TEST. Please speak with your supervisor if you need to use TEST. After reviewing your need, they can request access via an ITS Help Desk ticket.
A third enviroment, Banner DEV (development) is used only for specific projects and, typically, only a small number of people have access to this environment.
