The Epic Games Developer Portal is a browser-based tool. Use the Developer Portal to set up and configure your game with Epic developer resources: the Epic Games Store and Epic Online Services (EOS).

Your organization and game
The Developer Portal uses the EOS ecosystem's tiered approach to your organization and game data (game is known as a "product" in the Developer Portal). The tiers are outlined below.
Organization: Your organization encompasses all your information and specifically refers to a team of people, such as a game studio or publisher.
Product: Your organization can have multiple products. Each product is a game or other software product registered with EOS. All products are assigned one public sandbox for their live environment.
Sandbox: Each product can have multiple sandboxes. Sandboxes enable a high-level distribution environment for a game containing store-related information, mod configurations, and entries for specific deployments of a game.
Deployment: Deployments are specific distributions of a product sandbox containing all gameplay and player data, such as unlocked player achievements or ongoing matches in the matchmaking backend. You can use multiple deployments to separate product data between your live environment and your internal playtesting.
