The sandbox is a test environment, as opposed to the production environment, which is the live Lengow platform.
The Lengow sandbox is accessible on request for a 15-day period (renewable), without time restrictions.
When to use the sandbox?
The sandbox is useful for:
- Testing the installation of the Lengow plugin and its connection to your e-commerce platform.
Generating a fictitious standard order to test its recovery on your e-commerce platform or via API. Please note that no action is possible on the fictitious orders generated.
Please note that Lengow does NOT recommend the sandbox for the following tests:
Integration of orders from a specific marketplace: the standard orders generated in the sandbox are the same regardless of the selected marketplace.
Marketplace configuration: the data exchanged via the sandbox have no "real" interaction with the tested marketplace. To view the structure of a marketplace, add it directly to the production environment (your data will not be sent until you have established an API connection).
Importing your catalog into Lengow: it can be done directly on the production environment.
How to access the sandbox?
- Be a Lengow customer
- Request access to the sandbox by contacting the Lengow Support who will guide you through the various test stages.
How to create fictitious standard orders?
To add test orders, you must configure your sandbox and add a channel. Here are the steps to follow:
- Add your source catalog
- Add a marketplace channel
- Proceed with a simple configuration of this channel (matching at least one category and matching the mandatory attributes)
Once these steps are completed, contact our Support team so that they can implement fictitious standard orders in your sandbox.
About fictitious orders
The purpose of these standard orders is to verify that the import of orders is correctly carried out in your system. The fictitious orders are always built according to the same model, regardless of the chosen marketplace.
Thus, test orders differ from real orders that you will receive on the production environment, especially in terms of the values within the fields that can vary depending on the marketplaces.
To perform a test on an order from a particular marketplace, we recommend that you complete these sandbox tests with a live order test on the production environment, by ordering a test product that you have published.
