Organizations

Overview of organization management tools in the Developer Portal.

In the Epic Online Services (EOS) ecosystem, an organization identifies a team of people. Each product within the EOS ecosystem is owned by an organization, and users are associated with organizations as team members.

Creating an Organization

When you create an account on the Developer Portal, an organization will automatically be created for you if you do not already belong to one. Alternatively, Admins for organizations may add team members and manage their roles through their organization's page.

If your organization represents a company, such as a game studio or game publisher, you can configure your entity type accordingly on the organization management pages.

Selecting an Organization

If you are a member in more than one organization, upon sign-in to the Developer Portal you will be prompted to choose which organization you want to sign in under.
