Description

Sandbox for OAC/OAS (Similar to Fusion HCM) for testing change in a live system with live data.

Imagine we want to deploy a major change into production, a final check will be to validate how it works in production since SIT or Production support environments might not fully replicate end-user behavior or usage. Or unscrambled data might not be available in a lower environment which might uncover issues that can't be caught without actual data.

It will be great If OAC can take a copy of /shared in the catalog and deploy /.shared_<sandbox-name> with the full contents of /shared folder in it. All changes in the sandbox visible to the user who created the sandbox with the ability to share it with others using the same RBAC which exists in OAC.

Once changes are satisfactory, users can Archive the object and Unarchive it to where it needs to go. Would be cool if we can have a 'Publish' menu item to publish it to the live location in the main catalog (/shared/../../).
