What is the difference between test/live data?
These data are the ones used while you are testing your Gameball engagement experience before going live, mostly used by your team. Gameball will give you the ability to test the whole experience you designed on your staging/UAT environment. No need to care about deleting the test data that you have used during the integration cycle.
These data are the ones used once you start going live with Gameball on your platform, with the Gameball engagement experience exposed to your players per your configurations.
How to use the test/live data?
Your account will have 2 different API Keys, one for Test and the other one for Live data. You can access your API Keys settings section in Gameball Admin Dashboard through Admin Settings > Account Integration
Use Test API Key on your staging/UAT environment and Live API Key on your production environment.
Test/Live data dependency
Your designed and configured experience will be the same using both API Keys (levels, challenges, missions.. etc), the only difference will be on the below:
- Analytics dashboards
- Players list
- Players Game Plan Achievements
- Players Points Transactions
How to switch between test/live data on Gameball admin dashboard?
