I wanted to give everyone advanced warning that the AdWords API
Sandbox's database is scheduled to be refreshed on Friday, April 24.
Following the refresh all data stored in the Sandbox will be cleared,
and you will have to recreate your client accounts with a call to
getClientAccounts().

More information on the Sandbox environment and our periodic refreshes
is available at

This refresh was apparently delayed, and did not take place on Friday,
April 24 as originally planned.

It took place a few minutes ago, on April 28, and the Sandbox is in
the process of coming back up following the database refresh.

Thanks Jeff! We appreciate the update. Approximately how long does the
sandbox take to come back up?

Hello Jeff,

It normally would be back by now, but the engineering team is in the
process of addressing a discrepancy between the Sandbox database and
the Production version. It's being actively worked on, but I don't
have an exact time for when it will be back.

Cheers,

Ok, please post here when it's back up so we can resume using it.
Thanks!

Hello Jeff,

Unfortunately, there were additional complications it's not back yet.
(Which is especially bad timing as it prevents developers from trying
out the new AdWords API v2009 Sandbox, which shares a backend
database.)

I'll continue to update this thread with more info.

Cheers,

Hello All,

The Sandbox DB is active again, and you should see most of your
Sandbox requests (either v13 or the new v200902) go through.

However, there does appear to be a lingering issue with creating
criteria in the Sandbox that I've asked the core engineering team to
investigate further. I'll post again when that's resolved.

Cheers,

Okay: one more round of restarts will be taking place shortly as the
engineering team attempts to resolve the issue that was affecting
criteria. I'll post again when that's complete.

Please let me know if anyone is seeing any odd behavior in the v13/
v200902 Sandbox at this point and I'll escalate to the engineering
team as needed.

Cheers,
