Thanks for your help.


I think on personal cloud environment no way to do this. But on premise will surely able to do this. cmiiw

Thanks! so is it there any chance to migrate my project to another account?

Hi Jeison,

You can not rename your personal environment as Eric explained.
But its possible to move/copy your apps from one environment to another environment.

For that, there is one concept in OutSystems called IPP(Intellectual Property Protection).
Using this IPP, you can upload your files to another environment.

Its nothing but a security process which is preventing unauthorized copying your applications from your environment.
You can turn IPP ON or OFF as per your requirements.

Here is the link for the same(after you login).

Let me know if you want more information on this.

My project use my personal environtment. how to change another environtment and start with same project ?

and how to turn IPP ON or OFF as?

Help me..

I will show the project this Monday.


Hi Nur,

As mentioned by Palak, if you want to migrate your project from personal environment to some other environment follow this link https://www.outsystems.com/homeIpp/IPP_Page.aspx.

You need to save your project oml to local machine then go to above link and upload it. You will receive new oml which is without security and then new oml you can install in your new environment.

I hope it will help you.

So, from what I´ve realized, now it´s not possible to choose a name for your personal environment account anymore, when I started with Outsystems in the past, in 2019 it was possible. What I can see, now you only have a random name when fetching a new personal environment. Am I wrong? But is there a way to rename it or they really took it off?

Rafael, you´re correct! This is a throwback, unnafortunaly. Zero hit to OutSystems.
