You can extend and end sandboxes from the Sandboxes dashboard and from the Sandbox workspace.
To define a calendar event for a sandbox, see Create a Calendar Event for a Sandbox.
If required, you can extend an active sandbox.
To extend an active sandbox:
- In the sandbox workspace, in the toolbar or Sandbox menu, click Extend. You can also extend a sandbox from the more info window of the sandbox in the Sandboxes dashboard.
- In the Extend Sandbox window enter the additional duration required for the sandbox.
Note: If a max duration was set for the sandbox or the user, the user will not be able to extend the sandbox duration beyond this setting. If a maximum duration set for both the user and the sandbox, the shorter duration prevails. System administrators can extend any sandbox with no restriction..
Ending a sandbox
To end a sandbox:
In the sandbox workspace, in the toolbar or Sandbox menu, click End . You can also end a Sandbox from the more info window of the sandbox in the Sandboxes dashboard.
If a teardown command is currently running on the sandbox, the End button will be replaced with Terminate. Clicking Terminate forces a hard-shutdown of the sandbox, without waiting for teardown to complete. The option to terminate a teardown command is available for administrators only. Administrators may choose to Terminate if the error logs show clearly incorrect functionality. However, terminating an instance that is currently running Teardown may prevent CloudShell from deleting the sandbox's resource group and VMs from the cloud provider.
