- Oct 20, 2019 | Qijing Yu
This article is about the October 2019 monthly update to the AvaTax API.
Sandbox testing window
The AvaTax release schedule includes a preview period during which time the latest software is available for integration testing in the AvaTax Sandbox Environment two weeks before launching to production. If your engineering team would like a sandbox account for integration testing purposes:
- Development and Solutions Partners (DSP), please contact your Business Development Manager.
- Avalara customers, please contact your Customer Account Manager or open a support ticket.
No release for November
Every year, in preparation for Cyber Week, our highest traffic-volume time, we freeze our code for a one-month period to ensure our infrastructure can provide the fastest and most reliable calculation, and help our customers achieve a successful holiday season.
This year, Black Friday is November 29, and Cyber Monday is December 2. This makes the current release — our October release — the last release prior to Cyber Week. We will skip our monthly release for November.
See you all again in December!
