Shared testing environment for our API.
Want to try our API, but don't have access to Rev.io? Give our sandbox environment a whirl!
What is the sandbox?
The sandbox is a testing environment you can manipulate through the API. It works just like a regular instance of Rev.io, except all its data is reset once a day.
All sandbox users share the same environment, so other people's actions might affect data you're working with – again, just like a real Rev.io instance.
How do I get access to the sandbox?
Contact our Client Success team and we'll create an account for you. Be sure to tell us what email address and name you want associated with your account.
Feel free to use this template for the ticket:
I would like access to the REST API sandbox. Please create an account for me with this information:
Email address: [your email address]
Name: [your name]
Organization: [your company or organization]
Website: [your organization's website]
We'll create your account and send over your new login details as soon as we can.
Can I get my own sandbox?
If you're one of our clients, yes! Get in touch with your account manager to see about setting up a sandbox copy of your existing Rev.io instance.
You may already have a sandbox, which you can use with the API just like your production instance. Just send over your sandbox client code when first authorizing your requests.
I have sandbox access. Now what?
To use the sandbox, just make regular API requests and use "api_sandbox" as your client code when authorizing them.
For example, to view a customer, you could visit https://restapi.rev.io/v1/Customers/1001 in your web browser. You should be prompted for basic authentication credentials, where in your "username", you would specify the api_sandbox client code.
