Adding Beamable Developers

Administration of game makers on the game project

Congratulations! You have set up your Beamable account and you are ready for development, but you need to add your fellow developers and testers to the account so that they can make games faster, too! This article aims to walk you through the process of adding another person to your Beamable account.


For purposes of privacy and security, when you add someone to your account through the Beamable Portal, their account is inaccessible until they choose a password. This happens through the same password reset flow as someone would use if they forgot their password.

A. Create the Account (Team Admin)

First, let’s create your teammate’s new account:

  1. Navigate to and enter your customer ID (CID).
  1. Log in using the email and password with which you registered your project.

  2. Go to the Team tab to see your list of admins, developers, and testers.

  1. In the Add box, type in your teammate’s email address and hit the Add button. This will prompt you to create a new account for your teammate. Press Create Member to register an account for them.

B. Set Your Password (New Teammate)

Next, your teammate should follow these steps to proceed through the password reset process:

  1. Navigate to and enter the CID.
    (TIP: You can skip the “enter CID” step by including your CID right in the URL:<CID>)

  2. Click the Forgot Password link at the bottom of the login screen.

  1. Enter your email address and press Send Code. Each reset code is good for 1 hour from when you hit Send Code.

  2. Check your email for the code, then enter it into the password update dialog.

  1. You might see UnauthorizedError upon logging in.

Worry not! Your team admin just needs to give you the correct permissions.

C. Grant Project Permissions (Team Admin)

Finally, make sure your teammate has the right level of access:

  1. Log into with your CID and admin email and password.

  2. Go to the Team tab and find your teammate in the table. If you have a lot of team members, you can use the Search Members field to narrow down the scope.

  3. Using the drop-down menu beside your teammate’s email and numeric user ID (DBID), assign them an access level. By default, new team members are given “Tester” access.

  1. Go forth and make great games, as a team!


TIP: Finding your CID

To get your customer ID (CID), look for config-defaults.txt in your project. The shell snippet below illustrates how to get it from the command line if you are on MacOS.

% find . -name config-defaults.txt
% grep cid ./Assets/Beamable/Resources/config-defaults.txt
    "cid": "1320644969098300",
