Sandbox Goes Global

Today we’re excited to announce that our QuickBooks Online Sandbox developer environment now supports Australia (AU) and United Kingdom (UK) regions.

The QuickBooks Online sandbox environment, launched last year at QuickBooks Connect, gives developers a ready-to-use, sandbox company for development and testing purposes, including sample data. The sandbox looks and acts just like a customer’s live QuickBooks company.

Sandbox Environments for AU and UK

Until today, sandbox environments were only US-based. Now, we are taking it to the next level by introducing sandbox environments for Australia (AU) and United Kingdom (UK) regions.

You create AU and UK sandboxes from the “Manage Sandboxes” page. To get to the “Manage Sandboxes” page, log in to Intuit Developer,  click the Tools dropdown menu, and select Sandbox.


Up to Three Sandboxes per Developer

The “Manage Sandboxes” page has also been enhanced. Now you can create two additional sandbox companies besides the US sandbox that we create for you when you register with Intuit Developer. That means you can now have up to three sandbox companies!

You can distribute the additional two sandboxes as you wish. For example, you could create two more US sandboxes, or two AU sandboxes, or one AU and one UK sandbox company.

To help you get started, the AU and UK sandboxes come pre-populated with data for the “Party Planning services” industry type.

Please note that Payments APIs are not supported for the AU and UK regions; therefore, a Payments sandbox environment is not provided for those regions.

You can learn more about the Sandbox environment here.

What’s Next?

We are working hard to add support for Canada and India regions to the Sandbox environment. Stay tuned!
