Register with KWS
There are two ways to register to use KWS:
Using your Epic Games sign-in details, register directly with KWS as the first/sole user for a new KWS organization. You automatically have full administrator rights on the new organization. Within the KWS Developer Portal, you can invite colleagues to join the organization.
By invitation. If a KWS administrator invites you to join their KWS organization, you will receive an email with a link to register. When you register, KWS links your account to that organization, and assigns you the role(s) that the administrator specified in the invitation.
To register as the first/sole user for a new KWS organization and start using KWS for the first time, go to the KWS launch page and click Get Started Now. KWS prompts you to register using your Epic Games account credentials.
Set up your organization
Next, KWS prompts you to set up your organization and, optionally, invite colleagues to join your team.
Choose your type of team:
NOTE: If you select ‘single developer' here, you can switch to being a ‘team within a company' at any time in the Organization tab. Once you select ‘team within a company', you cannot change back to ‘single developer'.
Accept the terms and conditions and privacy notice, and click Continue.
If you are a ‘single developer', KWS takes you directly to the product creation screen where you can create your first product.
If you are a ‘team within a company', KWS prompts you to add your company and team information, as described in the following steps.
Enter your company name and address and click Continue:
Next, you can optionally invite colleagues to join your team.
NOTE: You do not have to do this now. You can invite colleagues to join your team at any time in the Organization tab.
For each colleague, enter their email address and their role in your KWS team: Administrator or Developer.
NOTE: Administrators have the following extra permissions. They can:
Update their organization's settings

Click Invite. KWS sends an invitation/sign-up email to each address:

After you leave the Invite team members screen, KWS prompts you to create your first product.
