Delete a Test Clone

Once you have completed your testing with your test clone, you can delete it. Deleting the test clone will have no impact whatsoever on your live system or data. The test clone was running in an isolated test bubble in the cloud, so that it performs like the real application (and data), but without affecting it. Any changes you made to the data in the test clone will not reflect back to your live system on-prem.
