Sparse data in Sandbox mode?

Hi, I'm making requests to the Merchant Measurement API and I'm supplying the month of `201501` to `monthList` parameter, and it returns successfully with data for that month. However, changing the month to `201502` returns the message `Data is not loaded for the given month`, even though it's simply the next month.

 

On top of this, I am able to get data for `201706`, about two years later. The month string is the only thing I'm changing here. Is this simply because I'm making requests to the sandbox API? In other words, if I get access to the production API, will I expect to get data for most months? 

 

Thanks!

Re: Sparse data in Sandbox mode?

Hi @alaneng,

 

Sandbox data is limited and you cannot test real data in sandbox. Real data will work in the production environment.

 

When you create a test App in our sandbox you will receive test data in your App. The test data for your Visa Developer application is available in the Dashboard under test data in the left navigation, this will ensure that you are using valid data that has been provisioned for specific scenarios. You will basically have a table per API that is split into the Request and Response sections and the values on the Request section are meant to be populated in the payload with the intention of obtaining results specified in the Response section.
 
Sandbox data is limited to what is provided in the Test Data tables and is not integrated to the Visa Network and you cannot test real data in sandbox.
