Last updated on December 6, 2023

Overview

With AccelByte Cloud integration, you can use the AccelByte Development Toolkit (ADT) Web as part of game development. An existing AccelByte Cloud account can play a build in ADT Web, where users develop and integrate code and content into their projects. ADT Web enables users distributed over time and distance to work on the same game namespace.

  1. Create OAuth Client on the AGS Admin Portal.

  2. Log in to ADT Web as an Admin, and then go to your namespace.

  3. Click Integrations in the left sidebar. Select AccelByte Cloud.
