Testing Alma APIs and integrations on the Guest sandbox
It is also possible to test Alma integrations in that environment - for example, SRU, OAI.
Following are sample IDs that exist in the Guest sandbox, and can be used for testing:
Users (primary id)
BIB records with electronic inventory (mms id)
BIB records with physical inventory (mms id)
BIB records with digital inventory (mms id)
Note that most of our APIs allow retrieving a list of identifiers. For example, GET /almaws/v1/acq/po-lines
can be used in order to retrieve a list of PO lines and their identifiers. These identifiers might later be used for other APIs that require a PO line number. Exception for this is the BIB API
: this API does not support retrieving a list of BIB records without knowing their MMS ID first. For using the BIB API with our guest sandbox, you can use the MMS IDs listed above. In addition, SRU
might be used for searching for BIB records.
