A partner sandbox is Marketo Engage instance that is used by partners during the software development lifecycle. Partners use their sandbox to learn the ins and outs of the Marketo Engage UI, and to gain access to Marketo Engage API services.
A sandbox is provisioned after a partner has been accepted into the Adobe Exchange Partner Program, Digital Experience. In most respects, partner sandboxes are functionally equivalent to a production instances. Partner sandboxes do not have add-on modules installed and have fixed capacity limits in place. Below is a FAQ followed by a summary of partner sandbox capabilities.
You can start by registering with the Adobe Exchange Partner Program, Digital Experience. Upon approval, look for the welcome email and fill out the sandbox form.
Once you have been accepted into the program, the provisioning process takes 2-3 weeks. This varies depending on the number of requests that we have in the queue.
Keep an eye out for an email with the subject “Welcome to Your Marketo Developer Sandbox”. You should check your Spam and Junk email folders in case the email is accidently routed there.
Once your partner sandbox has been provisioned, you will receive an email with subject “Welcome to Your Marketo Developer Sandbox” that contains login information. You must login and change your password within 48 hours, otherwise your password will expire.
Send email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include the account details that are located at the bottom of your “Welcome to Your Marketo Developer Sandbox” email (Account Name, Account Prefix, Munchkin ID).
The “Welcome to Your Marketo Developer Sandbox” email contains a login of the form “dev@<company_name_here>.com” which is not an actual email address. This login is simply a machine-generated string that is created during the provisioning process. The recipient of the email is the actual email address that is associated with the partner sandbox.
No. You may import leads or program templates using the Marketo Engage UI, or create them programatically using the Marketo Engage REST API.
The best way to get technical questions answered is to leverage the Marketing Nation Community. The Developers forum is very active, and is an excellent resource.
Another resource is our weekly Developer API Office Hours webinar. This is an open Q&A session with Marketo Engage product team members.
