Test before you set up your live account in Wisenet

Required Portal Access: Admin

Once you have received the testing procedure, web service username and password from the Ministry, you will need to test that the implemented NSI REST interface functions correctly and send the results back to them.

Please see our detailed How to Test NSI REST Interface guide on how to do so. 

Give yourself 3 hours to complete the testing procedure above and come back to this page once the Ministry has approved your documentation.
