Developer test data vs live

Started by Esther Mason -   in Getting Started

I can find no info in the docs on how you test anything?

We have a testing server with a version of a live site on it. In Stripe or other services we can simply mark things as "Test Mode" and safely know that Stripe won't do anything with test data. No such option seems to exist for Xero?

We want to test the Xero integration. How do you mark things as being for a test Xero and not a live Xero?
Hi Esther,

We don't have a test mode as such. We usually suggest using the demo company as explained here: https://developer.xero.com/documentation/development-accounts

Hope that helps,
