PKB has a number of different test environments using for training and testing purposes.
There are two test environments:
- sandbox.patientsknowbest.com - the latest stable version of the PKB software, used for training.
- uat.patientsknowbest.com - the newest features for testing of the PKB software. To be used for user acceptance testing.
Both servers have the same database back-end and so, have the same test data and test login credentials. This makes it possible to switch between the stable version of PKB and the new features version using the same credentials to compare the two.
For integration testing, there are two test environments
- sandbox.patientsknowbest.com - the latest stable version of the PKB software. Used for integration testing outside the N3 firewall.
- n3sandbox.patientsknowbest.com - the latest stable version of the PKB software. Used for integration testing inside the N3 firewall.
These servers do not have the same database back-end. The code on both these environments is in sync with production, and will both be updated at the same time as production to ensure customer testing is not disrupted.
It is important for users to remember that these are all test environments. No user should expect any more security than when using a simple external server. For this reason we emphasise that real patient data should not be uploaded or entered into these test environments.
