Test environment vs production

Adam Sep 19, 2016 05:02PM NZST

Hi after some searching based on a query from my customer, does the test environment use the same exact data as the live site? testing a company name on '' returns the company name they expected but testing the API in test environment doesnt and i cant test the 'live' API.

Hi Adam,

The NZBN EAT test environment is functionally identical to production but has different data. The Companies EAT test environment data, which the NZBN test environment gets its data from, is not a mirror of production. Data was copied from production several years ago and has not been kept in synchronisation since then.
