The Developer Sandbox is an environment where developers can try out 5G Videos being delivered from the Edge. Please note, prior to the playing of Edge Content, a subscription will be required at the location the Sandbox will be requested. Furthermore, after the subscription has been created, the Developer will have to onboard cloud native content to the edge. If there are any questions on how this can be accomplished, please take a look at either the Video Enablement, https://developer.alefedge.com/reference-docs/private-edge-developer-portal/service-usage-docs/api-usage-5g-video-enablement/, or Video Notifications, https://developer.alefedge.com/reference-docs/private-edge-developer-portal/service-usage-docs/api-usage-5g-video-notifications/, Service Usage documents.
As part of the sandbox environment, each developer will be provided with a container. A container will be shared within a team (if there is a team) or if there is an individual developer a container will be provisioned for that developer. It is important to note, two people cannot access the same Developer Container at the same time.
It is important to remember that a Sandbox can only be request by Administrative users, the one who first signed up for a Developer Account and invited the rest of their team. If you are the only developer associated with an account, this is not a concern. Furthermore, developers can request only one sandbox at a time. Currently, a Developer cannot request a Sandbox in multiple locations.
Please note, there is currently a three-hour time limit for Sandbox Usage. Should a Developer need additional time, they are instructed to request a new Sandbox immediately after their current Sandbox is deleted. A warning email regarding sandbox usage expiration will be sent to the Developers 30 minutes prior to expiration by the Alef Operations team. When deleted, Alef Operations will also email the Developers informing them that the previously provisioned Sandbox Container is no longer accessible.
Only one sandbox is allocated to the developer at a time.
Currently, a developer can use a sandbox for 3 hours.
Developers can raise a ticket from the portal or send an email to the mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org
In an ideal scenario, the turnaround time from the moment a Sandbox has been requested, to receiving sandbox access details r should be 60 minutes or less.
Yes. Developers will be informed via an email.
The developer will be informed by email when their Sandbox is deleted. If no email has been received, the Sandbox still exists. Furthermore, if the Developer goes to the “Sandbox” page and the “Delete Sandbox” button is present, the Sandbox still exists.
In an ideal scenario, the turnaround time from the moment the sandbox request is registered by the developer to sending sandbox access details to the developer should be less than 60 minutes. But if turnaround time has exceeded, they can raise a ticket or drop an email at email@example.com
If the developer has a sandbox at a location and wants to test the services configured at another location, he cannot do that as of today. He/She can either create the services at the sandbox location or wait for the existing sandbox expiry or delete an existing sandbox and then request the sandbox at another location.
Sandbox can only be requested by admin users i.e. the one who has signed up. Team members have to share a sandbox account amongst them. Please request the Account Administrator to complete this process.

As of now, Firefox is supported.
