Change in URLs

We've updated the way how our URLs in the platform are built. This means that if you have bookmarks (especially if they are linking to a certain environment) that the URLs will bring you to a 404. This change was necessary to have a more consistent way of navigating the platform. Please update your bookmarks to follow the new structure.
