multiple environments (staging, development, production)

My company is using the HobSpot API just for contact & company sync of our account.

 

I'm able to get API key for production environment data and integrate it with our BE.  But we also have Staging and Development environments with copletly different data. 

 

I want to ask what is the recommended flow. Shoud I create 3 independent HobSpot accounts and import different data

 

Or is there way to have one account with different data for different enviroments.

 

Note: I do understannd there is Testing Account option but from playing around it seems the Testing Account works with real data => not good for my case

 

Note 2: I think I don't need to create an App all I need is the API key to pull/push contacts/companies. Unless I'm wrong

Hey @tomas1,

 

Currently, while we do not have a sandbox environment in which the data replicates the real environment data, the test account that you mentioned is the best workaround. 

 

Test portals created from the developer account would also have access to the CRM tool, so if you’re looking for a completely separate environment, you could use a test portal to create dummy CRM data.

How are others solving this when they need to replicate production data?  This seems like a big miss as HubSpot takes on enterprises with staging and real sandbox environments for testing integrations.

@khamer ,

Totally understand and agree.  We are working on it 😉

Thanks,
