Folks, as you may know, CF11 changed things so that the Sandbox Security feature (for multiple sandboxes), which used to be Enterprise only, now works in Standard as well. (What used to be called "Resource Security", or "one sandbox for all code" was removed.)

But the docs on Sandbox Security (and multiple ones) still indicates that this is an Enterprise-only feature, here:

All references to Enterprise should be removed, along with references to "Resource Security", and indeed the page should better clarify how things changed in CF11.

In fact, there is a box there (about 50 lines below the top) that DOES indicate this. It may be that when that was added in the CF11 time, someone was worried about removing the references to Enterprise later in the page. But really, the docs are usually updated to reflect what IS true now, and may have references to clarify how things WERE different before. 

Certainly, as of CF2018, the docs should no longer still have the references to things being Enterprise-only.



I got a notification that this bug had been changed to component "security:sandbox". I disagree with that change. What i report is not a big in the feature, it is in the docs only. (I don't see the change appearing here yet, as it still says "component:" "Documentation", but perhaps it takes time for changes to appear to us.)
