Environment

     

    1. Sandbox – Initial testing

    Use the Sandbox environment for development. We frequently patch new code releases and update the Sandbox environment to provide better service to our customers. Hence you may experience some downtime.

    Before using the Sandbox environment, you must set up a secure FTP and whitelist your IP address with Contis. Click here to set these up now.


    If you have already set up a secure FTP and whitelist IP address, you can connect to the Sandbox via:

    Endpoint: https://sandboxapi.contis.com/

    2. Production - Live

    Use the Production environment to run your live system. In Production, you can make code changes using Urgent Hot Fixes. Disaster Recovery is also available in this environment. Note that VPN connection for Production environment requires a dedicated ‘live’ connection.

    Before using the Production environment, you will need to set up a secure FTP and VPN connection with Contis. Click here to set these up now.
