What is the difference between STAGE and TEST Collaborati? What is the difference between fulldata.test.collaborati and dummydata.test.collaborati?
We have two testing environments for Collaborati.
STAGE Collaborati (fulldata.test.collaborati) - This is a copy of production, and gets “refreshed” on the second Friday of every third month. It is used mainly for short term testing. We do not make test vendors in Production Collaborati. Thus, you will need to create a test vendor every three months.
TEST Collaborati (dummydata.test.collaborati) - This is a stand-alone testing area, suggested for longer testing. It is not “refreshed”, so your test vendors do not change. This provides an open environment to experiment and learn the intricacies of being a vendor, where the invoice submissions are not sent to a live client. This is the preferred environment for ongoing testing.
Please note that the STAGE refresh occurs every three months.
