Aura Summer 2016 - Client Instructions for Beta Testing
Testing Aura in Staging Server
Beta Testing OverviewiATS is planning on releasing a number of updates and feature changes to Aura to meet the changing needs of our clients. In order to reduce the risk of possible impact to your existing donation pages, we encourage you to Beta test your existing forms on our special Staging Production environment. This environment has been created to mimic our real live production environment, but with some restrictions such as the inability to process real transactions on your merchant account.
We recommend you focus on testing your special customizations such as Custom Style Sheets and any changes you may have made to prepopulate or default data values within the script of your website or the URL of the page.
Important points and limitations of the Staging Server:
How to Beta test your Aura forms in the Staging environment:
1. In order to avoid saving issues against your live production Aura form, please create a copy of your Aura form for testing purposes:
2. Create a hidden test version of your own web page where you can embed the new test version of your Aura form, and update the embedded Aura script you copied in step 1:
3. Open the test webpage that you created in step 2 and verify that it is working as expected. We recommend you do not attempt to process a transaction using a live credit card, however you can utilize the following details:
Note that these details will always cause a reject, however you will be able to confirm your page is responding as expected.
4. If desired, you can also test our new features, of which a full list can be found here.
Testing your Custom Style Sheets:
We have added some new CSS classes to our stylesheets, and added mobile responsiveness options.
