Continuing Development of a Storefront in Production

If you are updating or maintaining a site in production, you can import the contents of the production instance into your sandbox.

Note: Salesforce recommends that you use a subset of your data in your sandboxes as sandboxes don't provide equivalent machine resources as a production instance. If you use the full data set in a sandbox instance, you'll run into performance issues, including but not limited to, long running search indexing and higher CPU usage due to large amounts of garbage collection.

For information on importing data into your sandbox from a production instance, see Using Site Import/Export to Copy Instances.

Custom jobs created for the production instance are not run automatically on the sandbox, because doing so without checking or changing the job configuration can cause problems. Instead, custom jobs can still be run manually from within Business Manager.
