The sandbox is an environment identical to the live environment, but with dummy data. The aim is to provide a safe and free environment to develop and test applications, before using them on live data. It must be possible to move from sandbox to live without any changes, so the sandbox will apply the same security and data sharing principles as those applied to live data. This means that you, as a developer, need to:
- Subscribe to the sandbox API, which will give you access to the sandbox data. Just as your application user would subscribe to the live API, in order to access the live API's data.
- Register your application in the NxtPort platform, so that your application can access the sandbox API. This allows you to test the full OAuth2 authentication flow. This registration will also work for the live environment, it just needs to be activated for live data when your application is ready.
