Using the Sandbox Data and API

The test data supplied attempts to give you a wide range of possible test scenarios. The details given are checked by the service and if they match what you supply, you should pass.

We have tried to make the service match production behavior, but there are a few subtle differences.
Some things to be aware of as you test are:

  1. The sandbox service will match based on the family name. So if you supply a test subject with a family name found in the test data, then that is the record we'll attempt to match with.

  2. Matching is case insensitive.

  3. You can force the service to pass the person by setting their middle name to "passall".

  4. In the test data spreadsheet, you'll note in the last column that some entries are marked with CLEAR, PEP, SANCTION, FRAUD. This indicates that if they first pass the KYC checks, they will also be marked with PEP/SANCTION/FRAUD (or combination) results.
    4a. The above will return simple canned data. Those marked with SKIP will get their results from an external test service and will provide more substantial details in the response.
