Environments are regional, thus they are restricted to a single AWS region. Environments are a way to securely group deployments and configure the same network access rules for them (IP Whitelist and VPC peering). Additionally, you can configure which member has access to Environments and their databases. Selecting an environment color (type) is a way to categorize the different categories of environments.
There are 5 different Environment colors. Selecting an environment color (type) is a way to categorize the different categories of environments you have, eg. staging, production, etc. You can choose the Environment Type by assigning a color to it, and you can provide access to that specific Environment to members of your Organization.
Environments can be created within an Organization. Select the Organization from the drop-down menu in which you want to create a new Environment, go to Environments tab and click on the +Add new Environment button. More details on how to create an Environment can be found here.
There is a limit of 1 Environment in the Standard (free) Subscription and a limit of 3 Environments in the Gold ($50/month) Subscription. More details on Subscription plans can be found here.
