What is Intrinio's Sandbox?
A sandbox is a testing environment that isolates data from the production environment.
Intrinio offers a sandbox environment that includes hundreds of datasets. Once you create an account, you'll automatically get a sandbox API Access, giving you the opportunity to access our entire sandbox environment.
The sandbox has a large variety of limited, free data which you can use for developing, testing, and experimenting. Keep in mind, since it is a limited environment, you'll be able to access limited data only. For example, if you're accessing US Fundamentals and Stock Prices, you'll be limited to DOW 30 securities.
You can see a complete list of what's included in the sandbox here.
I Want to Access the Production Database, What Should I do?
Intrinio users have the opportunity to choose between the sandbox environment and the production environment.
In order to get access to our production environment, you will need a paid subscription to a data feed. To get one, find the data feed you are looking for here. When you find the data you are looking for, purchase a paid plan. Once you have a paid plan, simply use your "Production" API key, and you will have access to the entire production dataset, according to your chosen data feed(s) and paid plan(s).
