If I use the API in sandbox, will it search for items in Ebays whole database.

Hello, I am wondering whether there is a seperate databse for sandbox APIs. Could anyone tell me if sandbox and production retrieve items from the same database or different database?. Regards Hanish

Indeed. I managed to get some items by trying out different keywords. Thanks

The data set in the Sandbox is probably much much smaller than in Production.

I do not get any results if I do an /item_summary/search on the Sandbox, while it works on the production. Any idea why ?

Yes, different databases. At some point in the past they probably cloned eBay's master live database, then trimmed it down to make it the Sandbox. (That's my guess.)
