Sandbox- and Production environment
Before you can use your application consuming the Multivers Web API, your application must be tested on the "Sandbox" (test) environment. The steps to regiser on this Sandbox environment are described in this document. After testing your application you can register your application on the Production environment. UNIT4 will validate your application based on statistics in the Sandbox environment. The registration process for both the Sandbox- and Production environment are identical, so this is only discussed once. The registration proces on the Production enviroment can be started after testing your application on the Sandbox environment.

Each version of the UNIT4 Multivers API portal has a specific endpoint for both the test- and production environment:https://sandbox.api.online.unit4.nl/v14. This is the test environment of API version 1.4. You have to adjust this URL with the most recent API version.
