In this video, we cover how to enhance the API product that you created with Akana by adding a sandbox implementation. For APIs in production, the live implementation will represent the live endpoint through this endpoint.  

Only authorized clients should be allowed to access production data delivered by production systems. To allow API consumers to explore, test and validate API resources and to have API providers verify client identity and behavior, an API should also offer a sandbox endpoint. Typically, this endpoint mirrors the production endpoint, but it does not give access to production data or production system.  

In Akana, the sandbox endpoint is a separate virtual endpoint distinct from the live endpoint. 

Clients can safely access it without the risk of production data or systems being compromised.
