Difference between Test realm and Production realm

Test Realm

Test realm is used for sandbox testing of features and functionality.

Production Realm

Production realm is used as a live realm for real world transactions.


Note that data and configuration can be partially copied from Test to Production. A move to Production does entail some manual configuration and data loading.

These realms do not include the SAP Business Network. This is a separate system that must be connected to the customer realm via its own enablement tasks.
