Highlights

  • [AGS Starter] Admins can now choose any of the following default roles when inviting new users in their Studio and Game namespaces.

    • Studio Admin
      • Full access to the Studio namespace and its Game namespaces.
    • Game Admin
      • Full access to specific Game namespaces.
    • View-only
      • Read-only access to specific Game namespaces.
  • Added the following new configuration options for supporting unique display names and username disablement:

    • Unique display name: when enabled, account registrations and headless account upgrades will require an additional mandatory field of "Unique Display Name" for the user to fill in.

    • Username disablement: when enabled, usernames cannot be used to sign in; email addresses will be required instead. Public or admin search of users by username will no longer be possible.

      note

      This option is disabled by default for existing environments. Modifying this configuration will require AccelByte (AB) Support to execute.

  • Introduced the Cloud Save Game Records time to live (TTL) feature. This feature allows game admins to set an expiration time for the Game Record and let the service automatically remove the Game Records data after the specified time.
