How do I create a test portal?

Test portals can be used to test your integration without it affecting the data in your HubSpot production account.  Test portals function similarly to our marketing trials, so those test portals will have access to most of the marketing tools, and you'll also have the option to enable the CRM/Sales tools as well.

You'll need to have a Developer account to create test portals.  If you don't already have one, you can sign up for one here:
https://app.hubspot.com/developers/signup

Once you sign into your Developer account, you'll see a link to Test Portals in the navigation menu.test_portals_nav.png

 

On the Test Portals dashboard, click the blue button in the top right to create a new test portal.  The Test Portals dashboard will also show you any previously created test portals.test_portal_dash.pngTest portals automatically expire after 90 days, so if you're using a test portal you'll need to renew it using the More button next to the portal.  Renewing a portal sets it to expire 90 days from when you click the renew button.  Expired test portals will be listed in the lower table.  Expired portals can also be renewed up to 90 days after they originally expired.
