1. Linking deltaDNA account to Unity organization
In order to complete this flow you must be the deltaDNA account owner.
- Create a Unity ID if you do not already have one.
- Create a new Unity organization by going to account->Organizations->Add new. This organization is where all of your Unity projects (games) will exist.
- An organization is automatically created when a user creates their Unity ID. You may wish to rename this organization instead of creating a new one.
- NOTE: organization names must be unique and not conflict with any other organization name across all Unity accounts.
- After both the Unity ID and organization have been created, you must then link them to their corresponding deltaDNA user login and account by logging into deltadna.net
- Navigate to the deltaDNA account that you wish to link.
- Click the Unity icon in the top bar. This will take you to the account mapping area.
- You will now be asked to link your two user accounts by signing in with your Unity ID.
- Once the above step has been completed, you can now use the user interface to select the Unity organization that you wish to link to your deltaDNA account.
2. Inviting team members to Unity organization
- Now that you have created a Unity organization and linked it to your deltaDNA account, you can invite your other team members to join you in Unity.
- After linking the organisation to the deltaDNA account, you will be presented with a screen that provides the deltaDNA user email addresses, with a copy button to the right of the field. This button copies the field contents to your clipboard.
- Go to the Unity ID page, ‘Organizations->[Organization name]->Add members’.
- Follow the on-screen instructions to invite other team members to the organization, utilising the clipboard contents Team members will be sent an email invitation to also create a Unity ID if they do not already have one.
3. Linking deltaDNA games to Unity projects
- In order to access your deltaDNA games within the Unity Dashboard, you must first link any game that you wish to access to a corresponding project within Unity. If you have completed the above section then you will be presented with a screen that allows you to link your first game. But before doing anything here, open up the Unity Dashboard in a new tab.
- Use the main left-hand navigation menu to go to the ‘Projects’ page.
- Use the ‘Create project’ button to create a Unity project. The project that you create will be used to link to a game in deltaDNA.
- Note: It is important to follow this step of creating a new project to map your deltaDNA game to. Do not map your deltaDNA game to an existing project that is already being used with the Unity Analytics product. Doing so will result in losing all Unity Analytics data for that project.
- Switch back to the account mapping page in deltaDNA and use the left dropdown menu to choose the first deltaDNA game that you wish to be linked in the Unity Dashboard.
- Use the right dropdown to select the project you just created. You may need to refresh the page for it to appear in the list.
- Click “Link applications now”. This will open up deltaDNA within the Unity dashboard, showing the game that you just linked.
- Go back to the account mapping page on deltadna.net. You will now see a screen with a dropdown for each game that you have in deltaDNA. You can now repeat the above steps to link all of your games to new Unity projects!
- Note: You don’t have to link all games at the same time. You can keep coming back to this page to link any number of games when you’re ready.
4. Linking deltaDNA users to Unity ID’s
- Each user must now link their personal Unity ID to their deltaDNA login by going to the account mapping page and following the on-screen instructions. This can be found by navigating to your account page on deltadna.net and clicking the Unity logo in the top bar.
- When completed, go to the Unity Dashboard.
- Use the left-hand navigation menu and go to Analytics->deltaDNA.
- Ensure that a project that has been linked to a deltaDNA game is selected in the project dropdown.
- The user should now be able to access that deltaDNA game within the Unity dashboard.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
- Why is my game name taken even though I’ve never created this game in deltaDNA?
- Why can’t I see any of the games that have been linked from my Unity Dashboard in the deltaDNA platform?
- What can I do if I’m blocked from creating a game because my linked Unity Dashboard game uses the same name?
Why is my game name taken even though I’ve never created this game in deltaDNA?
Once your Unity Organization is linked to your deltaDNA account, your games will automatically be created in the backend of deltaDNA. They will adopt whichever names they have in Unity, including the URL slug.
Why can’t I see any of the games that have been linked from my Unity Dashboard in the deltaDNA platform?
These games in deltaDNA are simply records of your Unity Project to create compatibility between deltaDNA and the Unity Dashboard (for your organization and games).
What can I do if I’m blocked from creating a game because my linked Unity Dashboard game uses the same name?
As mentioned above, when linking your organization there will be games created in deltaDNA that you cannot see, but have taken the URL of what the game WOULD have had. Not to worry, though, because when you link a game from your Unity organization through deltaDNA, the deltaDNA project will automatically adopt the name of the Unity Project. This means that you can name your deltaDNA project whatever you’d like, and then once you link them the deltaDNA project will automatically be named to your choosing (with the name of your Unity Project.
