Why does my personal environment keep going to sleep?

It's my understanding that personal environments go to sleep because they are not being used, but I have a personal environment that is used every day.  I have data to prove this, yet Outsystems keeps putting it to sleep every few weeks.  What do I need to do to keep it awake?

If you don't publish anything on your personal environment (I think it's 20 days), outsystems will push your personal environment to sleep. If you are just using app developed on it, OS considers that it's not used for development.

Hi Suraj,

If we just re-publish the current code that we have on the personal environment, does that count?

(just curious though as publish mean like having code changes or just re-publishing)

That's pretty poor design. Any idea if they will ever stop this practice?

I thought it was enough to just login in to your personal space to keep it awake. Do you really have to publish a new 'release' ?

Hi Kristof,

Yes, you do. The reason behind this is that it's a developer environment. If you don't develop, it's considered not used. It's explicitly not meant as a user environment.

Hi guys,

In fact, these is the rules to keep your env online:

Logs into platform via Service Center or Service Studio+5 days
Wakes up environment+10 days
Publishes an app/module+10 days
End User(s) 7+ times in a week+10 days

Web Service does not counts to keep env alive.

Hi Fabio,

I get the other 3 on the list, however, a bit confused on the 4th. What does it mean?

The 4th is regarding the end user access. i.e, the user that logs into your application (Users entity).

Should be a flow of access (logged features) more than 7 times in a week.  It could be 7 different users doing login or one users doing login every day, for instance.

I made a mobile app. So if I logout and login every day on my phone, then my environment would stay awake?
If yes, then that would be a process that can be automated.

In the newly published page on What's an OutSystems personal environment  the following is written:

Yes, completely free.

Your Personal Environment will be available:

  • As long as you continue developing your apps.

  • Your apps are consistently accessed by end-users.

If you stop developing in your Personal Environment for an extended period of time, your Personal Environment will be recycled. This allows saving resources for other developers. But don't worry! Long before that happens, we'll let you know. We'll send you emails remembering to continue developing in your Personal Environment.

If your environment ends up being recycled, we'll create a snapshot of the applications you had. We'll send you an email with instructions on how you can restore your apps in a new environment. Keep in mind that we only take a snapshot of the applications, not the data, and also, the snapshot will be available for the next 6 months.

Hi guys,

I suddenly have come to think of it, what about if all the pages are set to be anonymous wherein it is just a for display web app and no logins required, what will happen to that environment? 

In my initial thought, it will not be sufficient therefore the environment would still sleep, right?

Cheers,
