Broadsign provides a sandbox domain to developers integrating with Broadsign Control API. With the sandbox, you avoid the risk of impacting your production network while testing.
The Broadsign Control API sandbox hostname is: https://api-sandbox.broadsign.com.
We recommend using an HTTP Token to authenticate API calls to the sandbox domain. See About the HTTP Token.
Warning: The sandbox and production instances have differing resource ID #s. Expect them to change if you are connecting to production (https://api.broadsign.com) after developing your script on the sandbox. Also, when changing servers, flush any request timestamps or client-side caches you might have.
Registering players on the sandbox domain requires a few unique steps. You need special credentials from Broadsign Services for your sandbox domain.
To register a Player on the sandbox domain:
- Register the player from within the player software. See Register a Player.
- As Broadsign Services processes these registrations manually, be sure to notify them when you register players on the sandbox domain.
- Point your player to the sandbox server by making the following changes in the player's registry, depending on your OS:
