Tired of having to give colleagues on your team access to your Amazon Appstore Developer Portal account? Worried about sharing your Amazon.com password for access to the Portal? Based on developer feedback, we have released a new functionality that will make managing your account even easier: User Permissions. We understand the need for each organization to have sets of access levels and visibility to the Portal’s functionality. Now, you will be able to set these permissions for multiple users of the same Developer Portal account.
If you are the Administrator on the Amazon Appstore Developer Portal for your company’s apps, you will have the unique ability to manage permissions and payment information, and oversee all activities which occur under the users authorized for the Developer Portal account. The assignable roles under the Administrator include:
- Marketer - Outside of an Administrator - this is the only role that gives users the ability to edit the company profile and content associated with apps (i.e., merchandising and multimedia). Like the Analyst, this role also gives access to earnings reports.
- Developer - Outside of an Administrator - this is the only role that gives users the ability to upload binaries associated with apps.
- Analyst - Outside of an Administrator - this is the only role that gives users the ability to view payment reports. Like the Marketer, this role also gives users access to earnings reports.
While there is only one owner-designated Administrator, there is no limit on the number of additional Administrators or sub-roles. Only the Administrators can easily see all other users associated with the account. Have a small team where the person handling submissions also oversees marketing strategy? No problem, users with Administrator privileges can be assigned to more than one role.
The process for assigning roles is simple. Once you identify everyone who requires access, go to “User Permissions” and enter their email addresses and we will send an invitation email for them to accept access and their role. Once everyone has accepted, we make it easy to sort by name and role on the Permissions Page for everyone on the team.
Finally, we realize that some users do work for more than one organization. So, we have added a new Account drop-down menu on the Home Page of the Developer Portal—allowing you to manage multiple organization accounts from the same Amazon.com user login.
There you go - User permissions granted! Begin setting up your team today.
