We provide environments to test your software with our APIs. There are different environments depending on which APIs you are using.
For some of our APIs, you must give evidence of your testing before you go live as part of our onboarding process.
This page includes some general information, but to find out about testing a particular API, read its documentation in our API catalogue.
Set up smartcard access, if required
Set up test data, if required
Some of our APIs include standard test data packs.
In some cases you might need to set up your own test data, for example:
- to test specific cases that the standard test pack doesn't cover
- to test data updates, for example patient data in PDS
To set up your own test data, you can either:
- use our Test Data Self-Service Portal (TDSSP) test data tool - but you need an HSCN connection - or
- contact us to set up test data for you
To request access to our Test Data Self-Service Portal (TDSSP):
contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for the URL, username and password you’ll need to access the tool
tell us if you need access to a specific test pack for update testing, for example, for PDS update testing we recommend the PDS Compliance Pack
For more details, contact us.
