HERE Server Environments

HERE provides two server environments for handling your requests: a Production environment and a Customer Integration Testing (CIT) environment.

The table below summarizes when to use these environments.

Environment Functional/Integration Testing Load/Performance Testing General Production Use
Production yes no yes
Customer Integration Testing (CIT) yes no no

Production

Use the Production environment for general production use.

Customer Integration Testing (CIT)

Use the CIT Environment for low-volume integration and functional testing. To access CIT for REST APIs, amend the base URL to include an additional cit segment. For example, the CIT URL for this API is https://places.cit.api.here.com.

Both the Production and CIT environments are not designed to support sudden, unannounced high loads. If you need to do performance testing, contact HERE to discuss options.
