This guide includes everything needed to use the Admin Flow Feature Prefab in the "Beamable SDK for Unity". Or watch this video.
The purpose of this feature is to offer the game maker an in-game UI for executing game commands and cheats.
With the power of built-in and custom console commands, game makers can expose any c# functionality to the Admin console. This helps during game development, game debugging, and customer support of live game titles.
The Admin Flow can be opened at runtime in multiple ways...
- Within the Unity Editor, press the “~” key
- Within a Mobile Build, use a "three-finger swipe-up gesture"
When set up properly, the player's user interface in the game project will be as follows:
Follow these steps to get started:
|1. Open the "Toolbox" Window||• Unity → Window → Beamable → Open Beamable Toolbox|
|2. Add the "Admin Flow" Prefab||• Drag this Prefab from the Beamable Toolbox Window to the Unity Hierarchy Window|
Here is the "Beamable" menu as seen in Unity:
Here is the feature Prefab as seen in the Beamable Toolbox.
A common use case for the feature is covered in the guides.
- See Getting Started for more info
Once the Admin Flow is open, type an admin command into the input field and press return.
There are built-in Beamble admin commands and game makers can create custom admin commands for additional functionality.

This section contains any advanced configuration options and workflows.
Within the Unity Editor, press the “~” key to open the in-game console. This always works, regardless of player privileges or "Admin Flow" settings.
On device, use a three-finger swipe gesture to open the in-game console. This only works if the player has sufficient privileges, or if the "Admin Flow" settings specify the console should always be available.
These hints make efficent use of concepts and workflows.
- For security reasons, it is not recommended to allow a players to access the in-game console. Beamable has precautions in place to prevent this.
The in-game console, on-device, will only appear if the force-enabled checkbox is true, or if the current player's account has tester, developer, or admin privileges.
The Portal allows game makers to grant player privileges. This privilege-requirement only applies to device, not the Unity Editor.
