GetSuggestedCategories returns no results in sandbox.

All calls to GetSuggestedCategories in the sandbox return zero results. For example, using the online api test tool https://developer.ebay.com/my/api_test_tool?index=0&api=trading&call=GetSuggestedCategories&variation=xml The default query (with credentials suppressed) en_US High camera Gives the successful, but null, response 2017-11-17T02:47:24.254Z Success 1037 E1037_UNI_API5_18575097_R1 0 The same call in production gives the correct response 2017-11-17T02:49:50.696Z Success 1039 E1039_UNI_API5_18582008_R1 31388 Digital Cameras 625 Cameras & Photo 88 11721 TLR Cameras 625 3326 101643 Cameras & Photo Vintage Movie & Photography Vintage Cameras 4 This is happening across multiple sandbox accounts and seems to have started recently.

Hi, Sandbox is a testing environment and the data quality might not be great. Hence we always suggest using Production data specially for retrieving metadata. Cheers!!!
