When you sign up to the MYOB Developer program an MYOB new Essentials file is provided for you to use for testing.
If you need an MYOB AccountRight file for testing, then you will need to log a support request with the API Team and they will share a shared file with you.
MYOB AccountRight comes by default with a Sample Company file called Clearwater (learn more about this file here). This file has some bare-bones basic content in it, designed to help people get a quick feel for the accounting tool and the data that can be saved within the file. It is not intended to be a complete model of every single element. Nor is it a 'living file' rather it is a snapshot in time.
The API Sandbox files are based on this file, and so they have some data to help get a developer up and running quickly with the API, but are not exhaustive.
This file is shared with you at the time of registration. You would receive an email from MYOB informing you of the file being shared with you. If you are searching for it in your inbox look for:
Subject: You’re invited to work with MYOBapi Team using MYOB AccountRight online
This email will look like:
Simply click I Accept and follow the instructions.
Shared with others
These files are shared with other developers, so please keep this in mind. You may see other sample and development data being loaded into these files.
Can I have my own dedicated development environment?
The API Team manages shared online sandbox files so you don't have to and this helps to keep the costs down for you.
If you would like your own sandbox file that is not shared with the wider developer community then will need to purchase your own AccountRight subscription.
This can be done by contacting our Sales Team. You will find all the contact details for the Sales Team over on the MYOB Contact Us page.
