    Hi All,

    I am trying to create a new Sandbox to test the new Unified Interface and I am hesitant based on what I'm seeing. I am following these instructions in this link but, then my Production environment is no longer listed, which concerns me. Also, shouldn't I create a new URL for the sandbox?
    Not sure what I'm missing but I don't want to impact production.

    Yes the sandbox instance should have a new URL.

    If you followed the steps on the page you linked to,I think you might have converted your production instance to a sandbox instance instead of creating a new instance. But, don't panic!  Follow the steps here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-platform/admin/switch-environment to change it back.

    To create a new sandbox instance, follow the steps at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-platform/admin/create-environment#provision-a-sandbox-environment

    I agree that the wording in the URL you posted is a bit mis-leading.
