Testing your SaaS product

This page covers the process of testing your SaaS product before submitting it for review.

Preview and test your product in Producer Portal

If you're using Producer Portal, you can preview your product to see how users will experience it.

Preview an unpublished product

To preview an unpublished product:

  1. Open Producer Portal in the Google Cloud Console:

    https://console.cloud.google.com/producer-portal?project=YOUR_PUBLIC_PROJECT_ID
    

    Replace YOUR_PUBLIC_PROJECT_ID with the ID for the public project that you created for Google Cloud Marketplace—for example, my-organization-public.

  2. In Producer Portal, in the Product Details section, make any changes that you want to make to your product's information.

  3. In the Pricing section, make any changes that you want to make to your plans and pricing.

    If you make changes to your plans or pricing, you can still preview your product's Google Cloud Marketplace product page, but you can't preview the process of purchasing your product until the new pricing details are approved by Google.

  4. Click the PREVIEW button to generate and view a preview of your product. When you click this button, you're redirected to a staged preview version of your product's Google Cloud Marketplace product page, which you can view to verify the information it contains.

  5. After your current Pricing details are approved by Google, you can use this preview Google Cloud Marketplace product page to test the user experience of purchasing your offered plans.

    If you're testing purchasing for a subscription plan, make sure that you also verify that you can turn auto-renewal off and on.

    You can only have one currently-active purchase of a product per account, so if you want to test the user experience of purchasing multiple different plans, you must cancel your previous order before you make a new purchase.
