Test User for the API

Issue #2470 wontfix
James Raybould created an issue

Would it be possible to get an official test user account with some test repos, test issues and what not?

For most API testing purposes a read-only account would be more than enough, it would just be nice to be able to give people who hold the keys to certain gates (Apple and the App Store) a user with which they can actually test. It would also mean that everyone who wants to do this doesn't have to create a separate account

    Hi James,

    If you would like to create a test user for your own purposes and share those credentials with your collaborators you are welcome to do so.

    I am afraid that a general test user account would just become a dumping ground for odd and transient data. I don't think we really want to commit to policing that account.

    Thanks for the suggestion,

    I was more thinking of a read only account or an account that would automagically be flushed to a steady state every night.

    Thanks for taking the time to give me a decent answer though :)
