A sandbox is an interactive environment that can be used to interact with queries before persisting them into a streaming query.

A sandbox environment can be started using the START SANDBOX command, which start a new temporary cluster in a user's organization. Once started, the sandbox bootstraps the appropriate resources until it reaches the RUNNING state. At this state, any SELECT query can be run against the environment without being persisted.

Sandboxes are automatically stopped after 10 minutes, if not used, but can also be stopped using the STOP SANDBOX command.
