Managing your account

Studio


We have setup the organization of users and games much like you would see it in the real world. Your studio is your company and your games are created and managed within a studio.

You can at any time create new studios from the Home screen, like you can also be a part of multiple studios with your user account.

Games


Your game is the primary entity in GameAnalytics. The tools we provide to analyze and visualize your date all reside within the game.

Please note: We recommend that you create a game per platform – that way you avoid getting dimensions mixed up and retain a clean dataset.

Game keys


Each game has a unique set of keys to allow data to be sent to our servers. When instrumenting either of our SDKs, you will be prompted to fill in your keys for the connection to work.

Game key

The game key is the master key identifying the game on our servers and unlocks the ability to send us data.

Secret key

The secret key is a hidden key token that verifies the validity of the game key. The two together makes you able to send us data.

Data API key

If you’re using our REST API you will need this key to be able to access your data.

Users


A user is always assigned a role, either within the studio or the individual game. Please have a look at the user role descriptions available below.

Studio owner


The studio owner is, as the title would imply, the single owner of a studio. The user who created the studio will automatically be the studio owner.

The studio owner is also the person responsible for the studio and its games complies with our Terms of Service.

Editing your profile


You can always edit your own profile by going to the User Settings panel found in the main sidebar menu.

This gives you an overview of your personal information, but also makes you able to manage your own email report subscriptions across all studios and games you have access to.

Last, but not least, you can also change your locale settings to reflect your location, preferred date and number formatting and currency. Changing these settings will only affect your account.

Inviting users


You can invite users either from a studio or game. It depends on whether you want the user to have access to all the studio games, or only be able to access a specific game.

When you invite a new user he will receive an email with your invitation and will be asked to create a new account or simply accept the invite, if he already has a GameAnalytics account.
