Pass Portal Content Copying Between Environments

On logging in to the pass portal for a deployment I noticed a new great feature added to the pass portal.

Now under each environment there appears a "Copy content" button that appears.

When you click on this it will allow you to restore the blobs/database between environments. The supported options are

  • Integration -> Pre Production
  • Pre Production -> Integration
  • Production -> Pre Production
  • Production -> Integration

Full documentation can be found at 

This is great for the continued increase in features that come to the pass portal UI and well as the great Deployment API which has a whole host of extra features in it.
