Sandbox data

I'm trying the B2B Virtual Account Payments - Supplier Service APIs, I make successful calls, but nevertheless what Id am I asking after the next sequence, I always get back TestSupplier111111:

- Create

- GetDetails

- Update

- GetDetails

 

I did not find anything about the sandbox data itself, is that browsable?

Also did not find any mention in the docs that I can't create new data in the sandbox.

 

Please give some pointers, what can be the issue.

 

Thanks,

Attila

Re: Sandbox data

Meanwhile I found the "Test Data" link within the application's configuration page, but based on that it seems that the sandbox is read only, please confirm.

Also how can one provision a bunch of test participants to be able to develop for these APIs?

Re: Sandbox data

Yeah. I second the question. I am looking at the Merchant Locator and there is only 1. I would love to have some more data to test against as 1 data point is kind of useless - other than proving that the call can work...

Re: Sandbox data

I would also like to see the answer to this question, I'm testing adding virtual cards through the B2B Virtual Card Payment APIs Virtual Card Requisition endpoint. I can create cards multiple times with success responses but I don't think anything is actually being persisted in the sandbox. 

 

@DianaTran , would you be able to shed some light on whether the sandbox is read-only? Can we actually change the state of the data in the Sandbox as we use these APIs? Or are we always getting mocked responses back instead?

Re: Sandbox data

Hey @str1zzwald,

 

That's a good question. Sandbox is used for testing purposes, hence, there will be a sandbox limitation. You cannot change the data of the sandbox and you will get mocked responses back. Please let us know if you have other questions.
