We want to go-live with our application. Yay! We have a UAT (testing) environment which has substantial data, and we'd like to go live with a copy of UAT database, so that we avoid doing all the data setup from scratch. Is it enough to simply make a new copy of the database, and use those params in the yaml of production environment? If not, where can I find a step by step guide on migrating data from one Mendix environment to another? Thanks.
Congrats. In the cloud you can create a backup of the UAT database and restore in the production environment. Check all mail and other settings that control the application.
Edit: Not on cloud: create a backup with your database management tool and restore it to the production database.

Yes, creating a new database, copying all data of your UAT environment into that, and pointing your production configuration to that database should just work. If you have any uploaded file documents in the files/ location of the UAT environment, you also might want to copy them over.
