User acceptance testing (UAT) is a way for partners to test their order workflow with real restaurants from the production feed. Only those user and group Google acccounts who have been added to the Partner Portal are eligible for UAT. They can place actual orders from real restaurants participating in the integration. The Account and Users page has more details on how to manage access to users in the portal.
A user or a google group must have at least Tester role to be able to perform UAT testing. Users with other roles, such as Read only, Editor and Administrator are eligible for UAT by default.
Steps to initiate UAT
- Navigate to the Actions Center.
- Head to Restaurant Status Report in the Dashboards section.
- Copy the link labeled as click here and share it with UAT testers.
- Alternatively, to test a particular restaurant, you can also use the link in the Testing Link column from the Restaurant List table.
The UAT page UI looks similar to the Quick Testing but is using the production environment data feed and fulfillment API. The alpha testing link will only be accessible by users who have been added to the Users section of the partner portal. Alpha testing can only be performed pre-launch. After your integration is launched, the alpha testing links are publicly accessible.
