I have been asked to come up with a document for a staging environment and what requirements QA would have for such an environment. My main question would be "What do you look for in a staging environment as a QA professional". Here is a list of things that I can think of right off the top of my head, but anything that could add to this list would be appreciated.
- Make sure that the environment can be specifically managed by QA, meaning that QA will only be doing builds to this environment.
- Make sure that the DB is as close to production as possible
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
