Meltano Cloud is currently in Beta.

While in Beta, functionality is not guaranteed and subject to change.
If you're interested in using Meltano Cloud please join our waitlist.

Creating a Sandbox Environment for Meltano Cloud

We recommend creating a new Meltano environment named sandbox. You can create a new environment definition using the following CLI command:

meltano environment add sandbox

If your data pipelines write data to a data warehouse or other production resource, the sandbox environment should be configured to not conflict with or overlap with any of your production data targets.

For example, if your production data pipelines output data to RAW_DB, you may want to create a new database called STAGING_RAW_DB or RAW_DB_STAGING which can be the target for the Meltano Cloud workloads during testing.


  • In the Beta phase, branch and environment names will be fully configurable without contacting Meltano Support.
