Building an app using QuickBooks Online API that supports multiple countries often requires you to test your app integration against multiple sandbox companies in different locales. In the past, we provided you with the ability to create 5 sandboxes within your developer account. We are pleased to announce that we have now increased the number of sandboxes to 10 per developer account. These sandboxes can be created in any of the 6 locales (US, CA, UK, AU, IN, FR) that we currently support and come with test data pre-populated into them for easier use.
What is sandbox company?
A sandbox company is a QuickBooks Online company in a test environment. A sandbox looks and acts just like a typical QuickBooks company, but comes pre-provisioned with data so you can use it to test API calls without having to set up initial data.
Why should I use sandbox?
Whether you’re developing modern applications involving multiple layers of interdependent components or practising test driven development, you need to test earlier and more comprehensively. Sandbox lets you test your app against our APIs without the need to mock data. It enables you to validate your code before migrating it to the production environment. Using a sandbox to test software changes before going live means there are fewer problems during and after testing.
