Going Live

Before moving to production, conduct User Acceptance Tests (UAT) to ensure a smooth transition:

  1. Catalog service displays all products.
    • Topsort app lets you select existing products when creating a campaign or adding products to an existing one.
  2. Auctions and events trigger correctly.
    • Auctions, impressions, clicks, and purchase events activate as expected.
    • Create a "UAT-TEST" campaign with products and a high bid amount.
    • Complete the steps with two unique users.
    • Send screenshots to Topsort for event confirmation.
  3. Topsort's data analysis aligns with the testing timeframe.
    • Topsort provides a summary of data received during testing.
    • Verify that metrics match expectations (auctions, impressions, clicks, purchases, unique sessions).

After completing user acceptance tests, deploy to production with these 3 steps:

  1. Connect live catalog (share live catalog URL if using Catalog Services API).
  2. Obtain production credentials:
    • For full platform launch, we create an account and provide marketplace admin credentials and production API URL. Generate your API key.
    • For custom UI, we provide production API URL and API key.
  3. Replace sandbox credentials with production credentials and move integrations to production.
