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

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.)

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 ?

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

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