How Do I Change an Exercise Environment's Availability Dates?


This article covers how to change an exercise environment's availability dates. Exercise environments are automatically assigned the same availability dates of the course they're added to. However, if a course is extended or your needs evolve, you can easily adjust the start and end dates of your exercise environments. If you would like information on how to add exercise environments to your courses, please visit our Adding Exercise Environments article.

1. Once logged in to the Virginia Cyber Range, navigate to your course page

The course page is displayed with the course's exercise environments listed below the course details.

2. Select the exercise environment in which you would like to adjust the availability dates

The Cyber Basics environment is selected.

3. Click the Edit Environment button

The environment page is displayed. The Edit this exercise button is in the top right above the Delete environment button.

4. Adjust the availability dates to your desired start and/or end date


Exercise environments can be extended as long as they are under an active course. The exercise environment end date cannot be extended beyond the course expiration date. If you would like to learn more about changing your course's end date, please visit our How Do You Change A Course Expiration Date? article.
