If you’re suddenly unable to access Game Manager, check that you’re using a browser that supports TLS 1.2. Make sure your browser is up to date and has 1.2 protocols enabled.

This article introduces Game Manager, the PlayFab developer portal, identifies portal page elements, and helps you get familiar with the portal experience.

What is the Game Manager?

The Game Manager is a web-based, dashboard that provides access to your studios and tools to manage your Titles. It is your go-to destination for managing your studio and title configuration. Most of the tutorials across PlayFab will reference how to accomplish tasks both in Game Manager and through API calls.

PlayFab’s Game Manager provides a fully integrated backend suite that puts you in the driver seat and gives you the option to pick and choose the services that work best for your game.

Use Game Manager to invite teammates to collaborate with you, grant them full or partial access to make changes, configure and manage secret keys, make encryption related settings, and set how much you want to trust your client app.

About the Game Manager interface

When you sign in to Game Manager, you're presented with the My Studios and Titles page, which lists all of the Studios and Title to which you have access. Select a Title to manage it.

Management of a Title is divided into four major views:

  • Title Overview - Review of the recent and overarching performance of your Title.
  • Build - Foundational elements and tools to configure your game.
  • Engage - Facilitate connections with players.
  • Analyze - Monitor and act on player behaviors.
