To get your hands on a Madrid instance, you have a few options:
If you already have an instance
You can upgrade it. From the Developer Portal, click Manage > Instance in the navigation bar. From there, click the Action dropdown and click Upgrade to Madrid.
If you don’t have an instance
From the Manage > Instance page, click Request Instance.
This will open a dialog that allows you to select the version you want. Select Madrid.
Already have an instance but want to start fresh?
You must first release your existing instance by navigating Manage > Instance. From there, click Action > Release instance.
After confirming that you really want to release your instance (back up anything you want to keep!), you will have to wait 15 minutes before requesting a new one. After the waiting period is over, follow the steps outlined above to get your new Madrid instance.
