Extension pointers - Simple yet significant pointers #11: Testing an extension in sandbox
After developing an extension using the Zoho developer platform, developers will want to test it before publishing it and making it available to end-users/customers. The Zoho developer platform includes a sandbox testing environment, which is a simulated end-user environment in which you can create sample data and test extension functionality.
How to test using extension sandbox?
- Go to Sigma and select the CRM extension you wish to test.
- Click Test your Extension in the top right corner.
- You’ll be redirected to the extension's sandbox. The sandbox includes a large number of Zoho CRM features, allowing you to test most or all extension functionalities.
- If you feel the need to make changes after testing the extension's functionality in the sandbox, you can return to the extension and make the necessary changes. Once you're satisfied with how the extension functions, you can publish it for end-user use.
