We need to be able to control who has access to the data in our production database. Whilst still being able to allow some users to just have access to the staging environment.
Our use case is as follows. We have an internal team based in the UK and they have access to the Live customer data.
We also have a remote testing team. In order for them to test, they need access to our same internal tools. However, for data privacy reasons, we don’t want to grant them access to the production database.
The ideal situation is that our test team only have access to our staging environment, so they never come into contact with Live user data.
Given the regulatory changes surrounding GDPR (in the EU) I can see this being quite important for a number of users.
