Environment configuration

You can access the configuration page of an environment by clicking the configure link under the environment name.



The Settings screen allows you to extend the behavior of a specific environment.

Configure Platform.sh environment settings

The Delete action will destroy all services running on this environment (PHP, MySQL, volumes, etc.) so that only the Git branch remains. You can reactivate the environment later if needed.

To delete the branch as well, you need to execute the following:

git push origin :BRANCH-NAME

note Deleting the Master environment is forbidden.

The access control is very helpful if you need your development environments to be restricted by a login/password, or be accessible by only a certain range of IP addresses. Changes to access control will only become active on the environment's next deployment.


The Variables screen allows you to define the variables that will be available on a specific environment.

Configure Platform.sh environment variables


The Routes screen allows you to configure the routes of your environments.

Configure Platform.sh environment routes


The Users screen allows you to manage the users' access on your project.

You can invite new users to a specific environment by clicking the Add user link and entering their email address, or modify permissions of existing users by clicking the Edit link when hovering the user.

Manage users of your Platform.sh environments

note Currently, permission changes that grant or revoke SSH access to an environment take effect only after the next time that environment is deployed.

Selecting a user will allow you to either edit or remove access to that environment.

You can also manage access to users on multiple environments using the project configuration screen.


By default, Platform.sh serves the following default and restrictive robots.txt on all non-production environments:

User-agent: *
Disallow: /

That tells search engines to ignore sites on non-production environments entirely, even if they are publicly visible. To disable that feature for a non-production environment, use the Platform.sh CLI command below:

platform environment:info restrict_robots false

Or to disable it for a specific environment other than the one that is currently checked out, execute the following:

platform environment:info -e ENVNAME restrict_robots false

where ENVNAME is the name of the environment.

On a production instance (the master branch, after a domain has been assigned) the search-blocker is disabled and your application can serve a robots.txt file as normal. However, you must ensure that the file is in your project's web root (the directory where the / location maps to) and your application is configured to serve it. See the location section in .platform.app.yaml.
