Our user account experience is evolving to support a more diverse range of teams, whose members are often spread out geographically and include a mix of full-time contributors and freelancers on time-limited contracts. Here’s what’s changing:

Personal and public organizations

When you open a Unity ID account, you are automatically assigned an organization. This default organization gets the same name as your user name and consists only of yourself. You can make purchases for this organization for your own personal and commercial development.

You can also create an organization on behalf of a company. You can make purchases for your company via its Unity ID organization. You can invite others to join the organization and tailor their access level to Unity based on their role within the organization.

A new way to make it easy for team members to collaborate

The latest feature we added to Unity ID is Groups, which helps customers to more easily manage their teams. An owner or manager of a company’s Unity ID organization can put members of the organization into a group, and give that group access to a specific Unity project.

A note about projects: A project lives inside a Unity ID organization and any member of that organization can have access to that project. But you can also invite people from outside the organization into one particular project through the editor or through a project’s user page on the developer portal. The guest project members will have access to everything in that project, but not to anything else in the organization.

What can owners, managers and users do?

Currently there are three roles a customer can have in an Unity ID organization:

Owners have full control over the Unity licenses for their organizations, across all projects. Owners are the only users who have access to the payment instruments and billing data at the organization level.

Managers can do most of the things an owner can do, except see billing and credit card information for the organization.

Users can only read and view information in Unity ID (with the exception of revenue data from Ads) but not edit it.

For more information, see the Unity ID FAQ or go to our Unity ID support page.

  1. Hi guys,

    Before this whole ID thing started we used to use the same Unity account for both of us (There’s just 2 of us in the team), so we made all our asset purchases using that 1 account. Now that we have Organizations, the obvious thing would be to ‘transfer’ all our asset purchases so that organization owns it, as it shouldn’t be tied to my account (what if I run away with it?).

    What can be done about this? We made all the asset purchases as a company so the company should own it, if I leave, the other guy should have access to all the assets.

  2. send the zip file to my email id

  3. The new (to Unity 5.x) project dialog never remembers my credentials, so I constantly have to sign in again and again. I would suggest fixing the basic things that should be easy before going for the grand control of everything feature set.

      Hi DimensionU – Sorry to hear you’re experiencing this issue. We’re aware of it affecting a few users, and are working on getting it fixed. I’ll reach out to you via email so we can keep you in the loop. Thanks!

  4. Your definition of “easier” is my definition of “impossible”. I used to be able to get to my licenses. Now I can’t. Where are the licenses? How do I find them? Why have you hidden them? And why is the license server no longer working? Why can’t I activate the license I just released? Oh wait, I can’t find out ANY of that information in this “easier” to use ID.

    No, it’s not easier. It’s IMPOSSIBLE!

    1. Judy, thanks for the feedback. The pages are new so feedback like yours is really appreciated. To answer your question, when signed in, click in the top right corner and a menu will pop up, with License being one of the options. Here’s a gif of it in action.

      Or you can go directly to this url when signed in

  5. Well, I still can not remove collaborator from my project (“Remove” button does nothing, simply shows a loading popup and reloads the list).
    How to fix it?

      Hmm – Skyblade, that sounds like a bug. If you’re an owner or a manager in the organization you should be able to remove any user. I’ll email you and see if we can track it down. Thanks for catching it!

  6. This is OK. Seems we can have two organizations for the same team as we want to keep our game ideals separate.

    Can I buy a asset for another Unity user if i contact the asset store with the correct ID. It makes it more convenient because the asset belongs to the account the asset was gifted too and updates in their Unity editor.

  7. Provide GIT support with Github like pricing and I will switch over. Ohh and while you are at it buy out Trello and incorporate that in this too.

    1. +1
      A Project Manager window with a trello-like ui BUT extensible via editor scripting.
      So much win. Productivity + 200%.

      1. Editor scripting? On a web site?
