The Developer Portal is an online dashboard where the cloud services behind your coherence-based game can be managed. It can be found at https://dev.coherence.io or from the Developer Portal link above.
The Developer Portal includes:
Organization and Project creation and management
Resource configuration and management
Enabling / disabling features
Here are some examples of tasks to perform on the Developer Portal:
Create your organization and project for your game
Start/stop/restart your cloud-based Replication Server or Simulator
Enable coherence features such as player authentication, key-value store, persistence, and build sharing
Invite teammates to your project
View your resource usage and billing forecasts
Is the Developer Portal required for development?
While a local ReplicationServer is available as part of the Unity SDK, in order to host multiplayer services like the Replication Server in the cloud, your team must have a project in the Developer Portal. It is up to your project needs when to begin using the cloud services.
